The subjects underwent at least 20 unpredictable head impulses (amplitude 15-20 degrees, duration 150-200 ms, target head velocity 100-200 degree/s) along the planes of the lateral semicircular canal (LSCC) and in left anterior right posterior and right anterior left posterior planes for testing the vertical SCCs.
In general, MRI is the preferred imaging method for the evaluation of structures such as the brain stem and cranial nerves, whereas CT is used for identifying pathologies such as semicircular canal dehiscence in patients with neuro-otologic symptoms.
In the inner ear of vertebrates, the balance system consists of three semicircular canals that contain fluid and sensory hair cells that detect movement of the head.
The rate of hearing preservation after vestibular schwannoma surgery is variable and is not as high as expected, possibly due to injuries to the posterior semicircular canal while exposing the tumor.

The main purposes of this paper are (i) to establish weighted-semicircular elements in a certain Banach *-probability space induced by measurable function s on p-adic number fields [??], for primes p, (ii) to consider free-distributional data of our weighted-semicircular elements, and those of operators generated by these elements under free product, (iii) to investigate semicircular elements generated by the weighted-semicircular elements of (ii), and (iv) to study how [??] acts on our weighted-semicircular, or corresponding semicircular elements, in the sense of free stochastic calculus in the sense of [29].
