Tympanometry is a technique used to look at the function of the middle ear. It is NOT a hearing test. It is a test used together with otoscopy and audiometry and is useful in helping to determine how the middle ear is functioning.
Tympanograms are classified into types according to the shape of the tympanometric trace (“peak”), which is dependent upon the middle ear pressure, and the middle ear compliance
