Tympanometry

Tympanometry: A test that measures the function of the middle ear. Tympanometry works by varying the pressure within the ear canal and measuring the movement of the ear drum (the tympanic membrane). The word 'tympanometry' is compounded from the Greek 'tympanon' meaning drum and 'metrein' meaning to measure.

Tympanometry

Tympanometry is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal. Tympanometry is an objective test of middle-ear function. It is not a hearing test, but rather a measure of energy transmission through the mid...
