I’m very excited to share with you something that I’ve been working on during the winter months here at TILT, an interactive 3D model of the anatomy of the inner ear.
This interactive is part of a larger project that includes a series of illustrations depicting the anatomy of the ear. Stay tuned for those images on the blog in the upcoming weeks.
In the meantime, go on, have a click and a spin around:
About this model
Certain aspects of this model were created from segmented MRI data*, making this a highly accurate representation of the tympanic membrane, facial nerve, ossicles and vestibular system.

*The vestibulocochlear nerve was not derived from MRI data, however heavily referenced.
You can locate the segmented MRI data from the following: http://audilab.bmed.mcgill.ca/~daren/3Dear/index.html
