A device and method for increased light transmission through cochlear bone by laser ablation for in situ intracochlear imaging

A method for visualizing structures inside a cochlea, comprising the steps of irradiating a cochlear bone with a first laser light to ablate portions of the cochlear bone, to form a thinned area of the cochlear bone, and imaging intracochlear structures by a second light via the thinned area of the cochlear bone to optically scan targeted structures inside the cochlea.
