Cochlear implantation is a surgical procedure that can restore the hearing capabilities to patients with severe or complete functional loss. However, the level of restoration varies highly between subjects and depends on patient-specific factors. This paper presents a software application for planning cochlear implantation procedures that includes patient-specific anatomy estimation using high resolution models, implant optimization for patient-specific implant selection, simulation of mechanical and electrical properties of the implant as well as clinical reporting.
