Learn More About Testing For Hearing Disorders at Aurora

Ear, nose and throat specialists (ENTs) at Aurora Health Care diagnose and treat many hearing disorders. Some of the hearing tests ENTs perform are:

  • Auditory brainstem response (ABR) audiometry – Auditory brainstem response audiometry is a test performed to measure auditory brainstem function in response to auditory stimuli. It’s actually a neurologic test, and it can help diagnose hearing disorders that affect the brainstem. The test is also called brainstem evoked response audiometry.
  • Otacoustic emission testing (OAE) – Otacoustic emission testing is a hearing test to determine the hair cell function within the ear. It’s used to screen hearing, estimate hearing sensitivity, help diagnose whether hearing loss has sensory or neural components and test for functional hearing loss.
  • General hearing aid evaluation and testing


ENTs offer many treatments for hearing disorders, ranging from hearing aids to surgical procedures. If you are experiencing hearing loss and would like to be evaluated for treatment, make an appointment with an Aurora ENT today.
