Paper Abstract

This study presents a novel technology for in vivo cochlear imaging in sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). SNHL is the most common type of permanent hearing loss and is associated with damaged hair cells of the cochlea. State of the art clinical imaging does not have sufficient resolution to show inner ear microstructure. We are developing and testing a dual-modal endoscopic instrument that combines optical coherence tomography (OCT) and autofluorescence imaging (AFI) for dynamic cochlear imaging. If successful, this approach will improve our understanding of the cellular basis of SNHL and enable the development of targeted therapies for inner ear disorders.
