This is a standard hearing test performed through headphones where you will be asked to respond by pressing a button every time you hear a sound. We can modify the test for paediatric patients (see paediatric page)
A test of middle ear function to check the middle ear pressure to help in the diagnosis of middle ear conditions such as glue ear or eustachian tube dysfunction.
This is a test to determine how well you can hear speech at soft levels with and without background noise. You will be asked to repeat sentences presented to you through headphones or through loudspeakers. The volume level will be varied to determine the quietest level you can correctly identify speech (Speech reception threshold) and this will be compared to normal hearing.
We use a range of age appropriate methods to test your child’s hearing. For more details please visit our Paediatric Audiology page
We provide a full range of tests to measure the balance function in the inner ear for patients suffering with vertigo or imbalance. For full details please visit the balance clinic page.
If you would like to pay through your medical insurance for your hearing or balance tests, then you will need to obtain a pre-authorisation number from your insurance company before attending the appointment. Simply give them a call quoting our name (Pindrop Hearing or Mr Rony Ganguly), the tests you have been referred for and the name of the referring consultant. Below you will find a list of the most common tests patients are referred to us for, as well as a list of medical insurers and our provider numbers, should you need to quote that as well.
Whatever your reason for coming to us, we are very much looking forward to seeing you and welcoming you to our state of the art facilities.
Your balance is controlled by three things: What you see, sensory input from your muscles and joints, and the vestibular system of the inner ear. The brain processes information from these three inputs and co-ordinates your balance.
If you are experiencing dizziness or imbalance, your physician can refer you to our balance clinic in London. We will perform a vestibular function test, which will determine whether or not it’s being caused by a problem in your inner ear.
