To study internal structure in the pathology of cochlea many research groups often used methods of decalcifications. There are several means of decalcifications, especially we used ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) liquid to enhance the image of cochlea of mouse using optical coherence tomography (OCT). But analysis of decalcifications of EDTA liquid to image of cochlea of mouse using OCT has a little research. So, here we show the specific information of decalcifications of EDTA liquid in internal imaging of cochlea of mouse using method of image processing. In this study, the decalcification of cochlea of mouse has the best effects when soaking in EDTA for 7 days.
