Longitudinal behaviour of neural response telemetry (NRT) data and clinical implications - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Lai, W K; Aksit, M; Akdas, F; Dillier, N (2004). Longitudinal behaviour of neural response telemetry (NRT) data and clinical implications. International Journal of Audiology, 43(5):252-263.

Abstract

Neural response telemetry (NRT) data from 63 subjects equipped with the Nucleus CI24M Cochlear Implant System generally exhibited little change over up to 4 years. Larger changes, when they occurred, were seen only within the first 15 months postoperatively, and these changes diminished over time. Intraoperative NRT data were generally stable enough to be used for assisting in the initial speech processor fitting sessions. It was not possible to predict changes in the subjective map threshold and comfortable loudness levels (T and C levels, respectively) based on observed changes in the NRT data. The long-term stability of the neural response amplitude and the neural response threshold, however, implies that NRT may be useful as a routine diagnostic tool to detect changes to the neural periphery over time.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
