Aim: Sensorineural hearing loss is correlated to massive neurological or psychiatric disease.
Materials: T1-weighted volumetric images were acquired from fourteen subjects with right-sided hearing
loss (RHL), fifteen subjects with left-sided hearing loss (LHL), and twenty healthy controls (HC).
Method: We treated a three-class classification problem: HC, LHL, and RHL. Stationary wavelet entropy
was employed to extract global features from magnetic resonance images of each subject. Those
stationary wavelet entropy features were used as input to a single-hidden layer feedforward neuralnetwork
Results: The 10 repetition results of 10-fold cross validation show that the accuracies of HC, LHL, and
RHL are 96.94%, 97.14%, and 97.35%, respectively.
Conclusion: Our developed system is promising and effective in detecting hearing loss.
