What is tympanometry?

Also known as:  tympanogram

Tympanometry measures the movements of a thin layer of tissue between the middle and outer ear known as the tympanic membrane. The results of the test can determine if a disorder that leads to hearing loss is present, such as an infection, tear, fluid or Eustachian tube problems.
