Written by the foremost authorities in the field, Audiology: Diagnosis presents the basic concepts and essential clinical information for diagnosing auditory disorders, otologic diseases, and vestibular dysfunction. The book provides a thorough review of fundamental principles of diagnosis, including the basic procedures, the anatomy and physiology of the auditory system, imaging techniques, instrumentation, calibration, and more.

It also covers the clinical tests essential for assessing the type and degree of hearing loss and for determining the etiological factors underlying the patient’s disorder. Chapters address such important topics as ototoxicity and pharmacology in the audiology practice, and utilizing functional brain imaging and radiologic techniques.
