In recent years, video otoscopy has brought about huge advances for audiologists in the examination of the ear. Wax and other abnormalities can be detected using this state of the art instrument.
Committed to staying at the forefront of the latest technological advances and providing our nationwide clinics with state-of- the-art equipment, we have ensured our team of audiologists are fully trained and qualified in video otoscopy.
An easy and comfortable examination, the screening process involves a tiny fibre-optic camera which is inserted into the ear canal. A real-time video will be displayed in high-definition on a monitor, enabling your audiologist to carry out a detailed inspection of the ear canal and ear drum. Physical abnormalities such as wax, infection or foreign bodies (e.g. cotton buds) are easily identifiable as a possible contributing factor to your symptoms of hearing loss.
