Description of the study

The test evaluates the ability of the auditory system to process sound (assessing the condition of the cochlea). It is a non-invasive test. It is performed using a probe placed in the external ear canal. The test subject has sound administered to the ear. The device collects the response from the auditory system and images it in the form of a DP-gram.
The better the cochlear function, the higher the response level. The test is sensitive and mainly evaluates hearing capabilities.
