A case history is taken by the Audiologist before he/she starts your hearing test. The test takes about an hour from start to finish.
An Audiologist will use an otoscope to assess the ear canal and eardrum. The Audiologist can determine the presence of excess wax, foreign bodies, pus, or other diseases in the ear canal.
This test is used to assess the mobility of the eardrum and the function of the middle ear. This test can determine the presence of an ear infection, perforation of the eardrum, or dislocation of the ossicular bones.
