Answer

Additional tests include the following:

  • Pure tone and speech audiometry - The shape of the audiogram for an individual with hearing loss can provide the otologist or audiologist with important information for determining the nature and cause of the hearing defect; the audiogram configuration of air conduction hearing loss can be used as an additional test for diagnosis of myringitis
