Impedance-based CI Insertion Depth Estimation

A team from the Hearing Research Laboratory of the ARTORG Center and the Inselspital ENT Department have developed a new method that enables surgeons to quickly estimate the insertion depth of a cochlear implant (CI) based on impedance telemetry. The method is a valuable alternative for objectively assessing the surgical outcome, especially when resources are not available for postoperative computed tomography scans.
