There are multiple reasons that can lead to hearing loss. Trauma, congenital ear anomalies, cancerous conditions, tumor, nerve issues, spinal issues etc. may affect your hearing ability. Whichever be the reason, if you are unable to hear anything in the normal pitch, tone or clarity, you will be prescribed an audiometry test.
Your ear has three sections – inner ear, middle ear and outer ear. The outer ear is visible, whereas the middle ear and inner ear are internally placed. The nerves in your brain are connected to these parts of your ear. If any of your nerves are damaged, the function of your ear is badly affected. On the other hand, if any sub-part of your internal or external ear is damaged or disrupted, it will again affect your hearing ability. Likewise, there are many other possibilities that can affect your ear in different ways, leading to hearing loss or hearing issues.
Audiometry test has varied aims. Lab specialists learn about the working and physical condition of both your ears using different permutations and combination with the help of audiometry test. Doing so, doctors learn which area of your ear is affected. Also, the cause of injury/damage is also found in the course.

Also, the root cause of the problem can be either studied using the same test or by another diagnostic mechanism. By combining the results of various diagnostic sessions, a final conclusion on your ear condition is made and passed on to your ENT specialist.
Doctors study your reports and provide treatment options that will suit your condition and fix it. Remember, the number of sessions and the types of machines used, can be responsible for the variation in the cost of your test procedure.
