Identify the Type and Severity of Any Hearing Loss
A hearing test, or diagnostic audiologic evaluation, is usually the first step to take after a routine hearing screening indicates that someone may have hearing loss. Regardless of the circumstances, further testing is necessary to determine whether the individual truly does have hearing loss, as well as to discover the type and degree of hearing loss.
When our audiologists administer the hearing test, they can use a variety of methods to identify the hearing abilities of the patient and pinpoint the cause of any hearing problems. These methods include, but are not limited to:
- Pure-tone testing, during which the audiologist plays recorded tones over a headset at varying frequencies and volumes and has the patient signal for the ones they hear.
- Bone conduction testing, during which the audiologist uses a specialized headset that causes gentle vibrations and determines how well the patient’s ears detect these vibrations.
- Speech testing, during which the audiologist determines at what volume the patient can still reliably identify spoken words.
A full diagnostic audiologic evaluation at Audiology Consultants, P.C., will include each of the above tests, but we may also include physical examinations of the inside and outside of the ear.
