Answer

The Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) is another measure; it was validated and reported in 1996. [11] Use of this instrument is helpful in the quantification of tinnitus and how it affects daily living. The questionnaire can be used at diagnosis and during treatment and follow-up to measure progress. This allows caregivers to better understand how incapacitating the disease process may be and to help in treatment planning.
