We Use the Latest Diagnostic Tools for Otolaryngic Problems

The otolaryngology specialists at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital have the privilege of using the most innovative technology when it comes to diagnosing conditions and diseases of the ear, nose, and throat.

A complete health evaluation is essential before our specialists recommend you the treatment you need, as there are numerous factors we need to take into consideration before guiding you toward the therapeutic approach that is the most suitable for the condition you suffer from.

For this reason, you will have to undergo one or more of the following tests and exams in order to receive a correct and accurate diagnosis:

  • acoustic immittance measures
  • audiometry
  • auditory brainstem response
  • distortion-product otoacoustic emissions
  • electrocochleography
  • otoacoustic emissions
  • videonystagmography
  • nasal endoscopy

It is worthy of note that none of these tests and exams involve any pain or discomfort to the patient, which is another reason for which you should not postpone your appointment. Furthermore, we will do everything possible to make sure you are comfortable during the diagnostic procedures you have to undergo, as we highly value the safety and wellbeing of our patients.
