Interest of the Cone-beam Computed Tomography in the Imagery of the Middle Ear

2016-09-12 18:38:21 | BioPortfolio


Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), is a recent medical imaging technique where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone.

As a result, this technique is less irradiating that the scanner. The purpose of this exploratory study is to compare the performance of the scanner and the cone beam in the detection of anatomical structures of the ear.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Modality of computed tomography in which the patient is irradiated in a spiral path around the body with a cone or pyramid-shaped beam.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Photosensitive proteins expressed in the CONE PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They are the protein components of cone photopigments. Cone opsins are classified by their peak absorption wavelengths.

The science and application of a double-beam transmission interference microscope in which the illuminating light beam is split into two paths. One beam passes through the specimen while the other beam reflects off a reference mirror before joining and interfering with the other. The observed optical path difference between the two beams can be measured and used to discriminate minute differences in thickness and refraction of non-stained transparent specimens, such as living cells in culture.

Photosensitive afferent neurons located primarily within the FOVEA CENTRALIS of the MACULA LUTEA. There are three major types of cone cells (red, blue, and green) with photopigments of different spectral sensitivity curves. Retinal cone cells operate in daylight vision (at photopic intensities) providing color recognition and central visual acuity.
