Synchrotron radiation microtomography images of the human implanted cochlea. (a) Axial tomographic slice of sample B07. (b) Semi-transparent three-dimensional rendering (3D-Rec) generated by setting a manual voxel-intensity threshold on a sub-volume composed of several concatenated slices. The following micro-anatomical structures could be identified and are indicated in (b): ST = scala tympani, SV = scala vestibuli, SM = scala media, RC = Rosenthal's canal, OSL = osseous spiral lamina, SL = spiral limbus, RM = Reissner's membrane, BM = basilar membrane, StV = stria vascularis. The partitions of the cochlear duct are underlined. The volume rendering (b) was generated using the commercial software VGStudio Max (version 2.0; Volume Graphics, Germany). Using the same software, a 3D animation of the same volume was realized (see Movie S1 of the supporting information.
