Tympanometry is a test that is used to measure the function of the tympanic membrane and the middle ear system.
Tympanometry is a useful detect of diseases of the middle ear.
A probe is inserted into the patient’s ear canal and air pressure in the ear canal varied. A probe measures the size of ear canal and the movement of the ear drum and ear bones, as well as the air pressure in the middle ear. This enables the doctor to know if there is any disease affecting the ear drum and middle ear causing hearing loss. It is a painless test, but you might feel some pressure in the ear.
