This study may include various testing including Tympanometry, Acoustic Reflexes and Decay. Tympanometry is responsible for evaluating the function of the middle ear; this includes the eardrum and middle ear bones. This test can be helpful in confirming medical problems in the ear such as fluid build-up, ear infection or issues with the ear bones. Acoustic reflexes and decay evaluate origin of hearing loss.
Eustachian Tube Function (ETF)
