1 Epidemiological data Hearing loss is a public health issue.
its prevalence in France is 11% (according to the study of the French Research Center on the psychosocial aspect of disability in August 2010),

1 Medical Care Cochlear implantation requires a multi-disciplinary team approach.
Patient care is composed of 3 stages: before,
during and after implant surgery. 1.1 Preoperative Assessment and management Preoperative CI assessment needs a multidisciplinary team approach.
The team concept allows for an exchange of information between the surgeon and other members of the implant and rehabilitation process.
The preoperative assessment,
intervention and follow-up (adjustments,
Cochlear implantation are indicated in severe to profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss Pre-operative CI imaging with CT scan and an MRI contributes to the etiological deafness,

verify the surgical feasibility and help in the choice of length of the electrode.
The permeability of the scala tympani is fundamental to check by imaging. CBCT is the post-operative imaging technique of choice,
because it provides better resolution and less of metal...
