Hearing Tests & Evaluations
Diagnostic Service at Our Hearing Centers in Fall River and Hyannis, MA
Are you having trouble hearing? If so, the first thing you should do is schedule an appointment for a diagnostic hearing test. The hearing tests that we perform on our patients provide them with the information they need to make important decisions concerning their hearing.
When you come to our center for a hearing evaluation, we can help you determine whether or not you suffer from hearing loss, the level of hearing loss that has occurred, the possible cause, and your best options for treatment. Our Fall River and Hyannis hearing centers, Duncan Hearing Healthcare, is here to help you improve your hearing!
Here are the types of diagnostic hearing tests and evaluations that we offer:
- Audiometric testing – Low-frequency and high-frequency words are used in this type of testing. Audiometric testing evaluates your ability to hear and understand words when the speaker is only a short distance away, such as when you are having a conversation.
- Tympanometry – In this type of testing, the audiologist uses various levels of air pressure to evaluate the condition of the middle ear, the eardrum’s mobility, and the conduction bones.
- Otacoustic emissions (OAE) testing – OAE testing checks to see if the outer hair cells vibrate and produce emissions (an inaudible echo) when sounds are made. If no emissions are detected, the patient may suffer from hearing loss.
