3D Ear Canal Scanner Depicts The Inside Of The Skull
Lantos Technologies' FDA-approved digital scanner will allow audiologists to produce better fitting hearing aids.
Lantos Technologies has introduced the first FDA-approved 3D ear canal scanner, which will enable audiologists to measure their patients’ ears for better-fitting hearing aids. The 3D ear scanning system can quickly and accurately map out the inside of the ear, streamlining the process of obtaining ear topology measurements for custom-fit in-ear devices.
It is composed of a portable handheld scanner with a video otoscope for visualization and navigation of the ear canal. Images are captured and a 3D scan of the ear is generated using state-of-the-art optics and stitching algorithms in under a minute.
