Robotic cochlear implantation is a novel surgical technique that potentially improves surgical outcomes of cochlear implantation. The robotic platform requires patient-specific 3D visualizations generated from CT scans to plan and conduct the surgery. Current visualizations use rudimentary colouring and rendering parameters to visualize the surgical plan. Life-like rendering of anatomical and associated structures specific to robotic cochlear implantation was investigated. Microscopic and endoscopic images of ear surgery were analysed to optimize rendering parameters. Through more life-like visualizations, the user satisfaction could be improved.
