Otosclerosis | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Hearing tests generally show nerve function to be normal, but there is difficulty getting sound to the nerve through the abnormal bone formation. On the hearing tests, low frequencies are usually most severely affected. If there is some concern about nerve damage to the hearing or balance structures, a CT scan of the temporal bone can show abnormalities.
