Model-based hearing diagnosis of middle ear condition using inverse fuzzy arithmetic and artificial neuronal network

  • Due to the large interindividual variances and the poor optical accessibility of the ear, the specificity of hearing diagnostics today is severely restricted to a certain clinical picture and quantitative assessment. Often only a yes or no decision is possible, which depends strongly on the subjective assessment of the ENT physician. A novel approach, in which objectively obtainable, non invasive audiometric measurements are evaluated using a numerical middle ear model, makes it possible to make the hidden middle ear properties visible and quantifiable. The central topic of this paper is a novel parameter identification algorithm that combines inverse fuzzy arithmetic with an artificial neural network in order to achieve a coherent diagnostic overall picture in the comparison of model and measurement. Its usage is shown at a pathological pattern called malleus fixation where the upper ligament of the malleus is pathologically stiffened.
