Cochlear Implant clinical trials at UCSF

2 in progress, 0 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Clinical Evaluation of the Cochlear Nucleus CI532 Cochlear Implant in Adults

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this study is to gather long-term data on the FDA approved CI532 cochlear implant, and CP1000 (Nucleus 7) sound processor

    San Francisco, California and other locations

  • CT Guided CI Programming

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The current standard of care for cochlear implants (CI) does not address the significant pitch-place mismatch that is inherent in cochlear implantation (see detailed description below). The present study uses postoperative Flat Panel (higher resolution than standard) CT imaging to measure where CI electrodes sit within an individual's cochlea; doing so allows for more accurate frequency mapping (and thus pitch perception). The hypothesis of this study is that long-term (1 year) use of CT image-based frequency maps, beginning on the first day of CI activation, will improve user performance in the areas of speech and music perception, as compared to the use of default programming settings.
