MRIs better at diagnosing needs for 'bionic ear' implants

... associated with CTs. The implant is essentially a bionic ear, Dr. Roland said. The ear normally translates sound waves a mechanical form of energy to electrical impulses, which the brain perceives as sound. Implants bypass the dysfunctional inner ear and mirror the natural mechanical-to-electrical-impuls...
