Introduction to Lantos 3D Scanning

View Course Details Please note: exam questions are subject to change.

1.  Mastoid patients can be scanned as long as:
  1. There isn't any specific shower precaution when it comes to water
  2. There isn't any drainage
  3. The patient consents to the procedure
  4. All of the above
2.  What are the benefits of the membrane?
  1. The membrane provides a controlled environment for data collection, eliminating potential artifact from hair, wax, skin oils, lighting, and skin tone.
  2. The reflective inner surface of the membrane captures data further away from the camera, meaning you don't need to insert the camera deep into the canal during data collection.
  3. By disposing of the membrane after each patient, the fresh membrane provides a completely sanitary procedure in accordance with universal precautions.
  4. All of the above.
3.  What are contraindications for scanning?
  1. Dry skin and itchy ear
  2. TM perf, exostoses and mastoid cavity
  3. Drainage, cerumen, infection, and foreign body
  4. All of the above
4.  How many data points does the Lantos 3D scanner stitch together to form a 3D mesh of the ears unique topography?
  1. >1,000,000 data points
  2. <800,000 data points
  3. <500,000 data points
  4. <100,000 data points
5.  What are the benefits of providing your patients with custom products?
  1. Better retention leading to less remakes.
  2. Standing out from your competitors who are providing one-size-fits-all solutions
  3. A better seal leading to less feedback and improved sound quality
  4. All of the above
6.  The Lantos 3D Scanner captures data from the following surfaces:
  1. Only from the entrance of the canal to within 10 mm of the tympanic membrane
  2. Only the cymba concha, concha bowl, antitragus and tragus
  3. The entire outer ear to within 5 mm of the TM
  4. Only from the entrance of the canal to within 5 mm of the tympanic membrane
7.  Who cannot operate the Lantos 3D Ear Scanner?
  1. Any hearing professional who is able to use an otoscope for the purpose of non-diagnostic, inspection the ear.
  2. Audiology Assistants (per state regulations)
  3. Audiologists
  4. Patients
8.  What types of sites are currently using Lantos 3D Scanning technology?
  1. Clinical
  2. Consumer Audio
  3. Military
  4. Research
  5. All of the above
9.  How many different orders can be placed from one set of scans?
  1. Products are currently not being made from scans
  2. Three orders
  3. Only one order
  4. Endless orders
10.  How does one know how deep to place the camera of the Lantos 3D Scanning System?
  1. The audiologist can see the tympanic membrane and aligns an on-screen target to the annulus.
  2. The audiologist relies on the patient to yell out when the tympanic membrane is touched.
  3. There is a marking on the scanner showing 25 mm depth.
  4. There is a guide bar on the side of the screen that flashes when placement is reached.
