What to Expect from a Hearing Test at UPMC
A hearing test will be performed by an experienced audiologist at the Audiology office at UPMC located within the Ear, Nose & Throat office. Your doctor will begin by assessing your medical history, your current symptoms and any other health concerns that may be causing your hearing problem.
To get a closer look at the structures of your ear, your doctor will look inside your ear using an otoscope. If you have ear drainage, the contents will be collected and tested at a lab. Your doctor may refer you to an ear, nose and throat specialist for further care.
Types of Hearing Tests
As part of your hearing examination, your audiologist may perform these tests:
- An evaluation of your internal ear canal and eardrum (with an otoscope)
- CT scan and MRI to screen for cancer or a tumor
