Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations The audiometric evaluation consists of pure tone air and bone conduction testing. Testing pure tones is done to determine the degree of hearing loss and whether hearing loss is conductive or sensorineural. Speech audiometry is obtained to evaluate the individual’s ability to understand speech at an elevated comfortable volume. Speech discrimination is also tested to determine how much a person will understand when wearing hearing aids. VNG and Canalith Repositioning for BPPV -Balance Dizziness Testing During the VNG test eye movements caused by positional or caloric stimulation of the inner ear balance structures are recorded. The results of the series of studies indicate the presence of dizziness or imbalance due to unequal neural messages to the vestibular system. DPOAEs Acoustically evoked otoacoustic emission testing allows the audiologist to understand how the outer hair cells of your inner ear are working.
