What is audiology testing?

Audiology testing helps diagnose hearing loss. Hearing is a complex process that involves various parts of your ears, sensory nerves, and your brain. Hearing loss occurs when you have a problem with one or more of the parts you need to hear. 

The specialists at Raymond L. Yung, MD, PC, provide audiology testing using state-of-the-art evaluation equipment. They do testing for children and adults.

Who needs audiology testing?

Anyone experiencing symptoms of hearing loss needs audiology testing. Signs and symptoms of hearing loss include:

  • Difficulty hearing what others are saying
  • Asking people to repeat what they say
  • Problems hearing high-pitched sounds
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Increasing the volume to hear the TV or music system

Hearing loss affects all ages but is more common as you get older. If you have trouble hearing what others are saying, schedule an audiology consultation at Raymond L. Yung, MD, PC.

What happens during audiology testing?

The specialists at Raymond L. Yung, MD, PC, use many tools for audiology testing. The type of testing you need depends on your age and the suspected cause of your hearing difficulty. Some of the testing tools they use include:

Pure-tone audiometry

For pure-tone audiometry, you listen to different sounds through special headphones. The test helps identify the quietest sound you can hear.

Tympanometry testing

Tympanometry testing evaluates the function of the middle ear. The test helps diagnose ear problems like middle ear infections and fluid in the ears that can cause hearing loss. 

Auditory brainstem response (ABR)

ABR tests the function of the inner ear and the sensory nerves that send sound to your brain. The specialists perform this test on children and other people who can’t undergo other types of hearing tests.

Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs)

OAEs test the function of the inner ear, measuring the vibration of the echoes from the inner ear back to the middle ear. These echoes are called otoacoustic emissions.

What happens after audiology testing?

Your provider at Raymond L. Yung, MD, PC, talks to you about the results of your audiology testing and makes recommendations. For those who need it, the practice does consultations and fittings for hearing aids.
