Clinical Hearing Assessments

A Hearing Assessment is Comprehensive, Designed to Identify Unique Hearing Needs.

Learn how to prepare for your test, what to expect, and what’s evaluated.

What to Expect and Preparation

At Intermountain Audiology, we provide audiological evaluations and hearing tests for adults and school aged children.  A hearing assessment at our clinic is much more than just testing.  We want to know about your history of noise exposure, medical history, other health factors, and family history.

We’ll also want to know what type of social environments are you most often in, how you are doing in different hearing situations, and how you are dealing with hearing issues in your life.  As the appointment approaches, it’s a good idea to starting thinking about these questions.

We recommend you bring a spouse or family member to the consultation as they can give important feedback on when you’re having difficulties.  This information is helpful in developing the best solution for your unique hearing needs.

The Evaluation

Our Doctors of Audiology will conduct a thorough assessment of your hearing.  Our diagnostic technology includes:

  • Pure Tone Testing
  • Bone Conduction Testing
  • Video Otoscopy
  • Real Ear Speech Measurement
  • Computerized Hearing Aid Analysis

 
audiogram

An audiogram, which is the graphical representation of testing results, is the product of the assessment.  It shows the specific frequencies and intensity levels of the patient’s hearing in each ear.

In the pictured graph, the audiogram shows the frequencies across the bottom from low to high.  Levels of intensity are shown from top to bottom with the quietest sounds at the top of the scale and the loudest sounds at the bottom.
