Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Scientific results with the Slim Modiolar electrode

This Cochlear Science and Research Seminar focusses on the design rationales, scientific research and clinical outcomes with Cochlear™ Nucleus® Implants with the Slim Modiolar Electrode.

  • The design rationales focus around atraumatic surgery and minimising the distance between the electrode contacts and the auditory nerve.
  • Scientific research focus on surgical approach, electrophysiologic & psychophysical measures and preservation of residual hearing.
  • Clinical outcomes focus on patient hearing perception performance.

The programme will be of interest to cochlear implant surgeons and audiologists and includes presentations and an interactive panel discussion.
