Are you experiencing tinnitus or dizziness along with your hearing loss? If so, an electrocochleography (ECochG) test may be necessary to determine the root cause of your symptoms.
At our Hearing Aid Clinic, we understand the importance of accurate diagnosis when it comes to hearing loss. That’s why we offer ECochG testing to our patients.
ECochG is a test that measures the electrical activity in the inner ear, specifically the cochlea and the vestibular system. It is a non-invasive test that is performed in the office and takes about an hour to complete.
During the test, a small probe is placed on the skin behind the ear. This probe measures the electrical activity of the inner ear in response to sound. The results of the test can help determine if there is a problem with the inner ear, such as Meniere’s disease or endolymphatic hydrops.
ECochG can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of treatments for inner ear disorders, such as the use of a cochlear implant or a vestibular nerve stimulator.
If you are experiencing tinnitus or dizziness along with your hearing loss, an ECochG test may be necessary to determine the root cause of your symptoms. Our hearing specialists will work with you to determine if this test is appropriate for you, and provide you with all the necessary information and instructions to prepare for the test.
The results of the ECochG test will be interpreted by our experienced audiologists and vestibular specialists, who will work together to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment plan.
We understand that hearing loss and inner ear disorders can be a source of stress and anxiety, which is why we are committed to providing our patients with the best possible care. We believe that early diagnosis and treatment is the key to managing these conditions, and our team of specialists will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you receive the care and support you need.
