              Researchers Map Blood Vessels of Inner Ear

              To be able to study the blood vessels in the inner auditory organ, the researchers used a synchrotron system. The system, which is one of eight in the world, is as large as a football pitch and accelerates particles with very high energy. This makes it possible to create pictures of the smallest parts of the inner ear.
