Audiometry

One of the key components of a thorough diagnostic audiologic evaluation is a complete audiometric (hearing) assessment. It's important to have a comprehensive hearing assessment as part of the diagnostic process to more accurately diagnose and differentiate the source of the problem. All of our hearing tests are performed in sound booths to ensure the most accurate results as possible.

The objective of any hearing test is to measure the threshold for tones and speech. Speech testing measures the lowest level at which one can hear and understand speech as well as the ability to understand speech when presented at a comfortable listening level.

The audiogram is the graphed results of the hearing assessment. It is very useful because it provides a convenient way to visualize a patients hearing ability on a scale related to the “normal” range of hearing.
