MED-EL’s new OTOPLAN On Demand service is designed to provide surgeons and audiologists easy access to individualized OTOPLAN analysis and detailed reports to support preoperative electrode selection and postoperative Anatomy-Based Fitting.

How does it work?

  • Complete the request form below.
  • Check your email for request confirmation and a link to upload images.
  • Securely upload a DICOM (.dcm) file with your patient’s preoperative CT or MRI images or your patient's postoperative CT images.
  • Click here for OTOPLAN On Demand Imaging Guidelines.

MED-EL’s team of experts will analyze the images within OTOPLAN1 and will provide you with a detailed report within 2 business days.2 Preoperative reports include individualized cochlear parameters and electrode visualization for our FLEX series electrodes, while the postoperative reports include electrode insertion status and contact identification.

A file will be provided to import this data into MAESTRO fitting software to enable Anatomy-Based Fitting.

2 Disclaimer: Not all OTOPLAN functions are indicated for use with abnormal or malformed cochlea.  The information displayed in OTOPLAN compares MED-EL electrode parameters to a patient’s estimated cochlear anatomy. The software and analysis report do not select or recommend a specific electrode array. Responsibility for electrode selection rests solely with the health care professional. Furthermore, frequency estimates displayed in OTOPLAN are based on the estimated position of a patient’s electrode array and may not reflect patient perception. Frequency estimates and Anatomy-Based Fitting are pieces of clinical information the audiologist may choose to incorporate into the overall cochlear implant mapping procedure for an individual patient. OTOPLAN is not meant to replace the professional judgment of experienced health care providers.
