This article presents a method for developing anatomic contour maps that quantitatively display the vestibular apparatus's 3D spatial configurations. Contour maps are useful tools for determining the appropriate position of the drill and the safe depth and orientation of the installed piston in stapedotomy procedures.
Index Terms:
visualization, contour map, utricle, saccule, three-dimensional reconstruction, stapedial footplate
