Tests & Treatments

  • Auditory Brainstem Response Test
    This test may be performed to determine if you have delayed nerve conduction due to a disturbance of the auditory nerve.

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Dizziness and Balance Testing
    Diagnosing dizziness is a process that usually involves several tests, including a hearing evaluation and videonystagmography (VNG).

  • Electrocochleography
    Electrocochleaography is a test that measures the electrical potential generated by the inner ear in response to stimulation by sound.

  • Electromyography
    An abnormal EMG result may be a sign of peripheral neuropathy, polymyositis, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis or other neuromuscular disease.

  • Hearing Evaluations
    A hearing evaluation can be performed to determine if you have hearing loss and whether or not you need a hearing aid.

  • MRI
    Radiologists and oncologists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of your body to help detect many conditions.

  • Videonystagmography
    If you are experiencing problems with your balance or you are feeling dizzy, this test will help determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease is behind the cause of your problem.
