Hearing Tests Included in Our Evaluation
The team at Mt. Harrison Audiology follows best practices for hearing evaluations and is highly skilled at performing various types of hearing tests for both children and adults. We offer a complete hearing evaluation, which includes the following tests:
- Otoscopy – An examination of the outer ear, or “external auditory canal,” using an otoscope. This allows our team to see what’s happening in the ear canal and if there is a buildup of cerumen (ear wax), skin cells, or other issues that are impacting your hearing.
- Tympanometry – An examination of the middle ear using variations of air pressure in the ear canal. It measures how energy is transmitted through the middle ear and allows our team to distinguish your specific type of hearing loss.
- Pure Tone & Speech Audiometry – Pure tone testing includes tones played via headphones and bone conduction to test whether or not hearing loss is present. The volume of the tones is gradually reduced until they become barely audible and are recorded into an audiogram. For speech audiometry, words are played and the patient must repeat them, with the audiologist recording how many words were repeated correctly.
If deemed necessary, this testing will also include more specialized tests to ascertain possible medical conditions that need the treatment of a medical physician such as an ENT. Also, we are able to bill most insurance companies for hearing test-related charges, so please be sure to bring a referral from your physician when you come in for your evaluation.
