Acoustic neuroma diagnosis


, : Acoustic neuroma diagnosis. Georgian Medical News: 21-28

Pure tone audiometry, PTA, has been regarded as an initial step when starting acoustic neuroma, AN, diagnostic service. If observing unilateral/asymmetrical sensorineural hearing loss, electronystagmography, ENG, and registration of auditory brainstem responses, ABRs, are instructed to perform. The measures of the methods are listed appearing particularly effective for AN detecting. Efficacy of ENG and ABR approaches in verification of ANs of even initial stages has been stated to reach the absolute identification score, 100%. In tinnitus and/or vertigo complaints, ENG and ABR examinations are recommended to utilize under normal PTA even. The positive evidence of ANs via ENG and ABR has to validate by contrasting magnetic resonance imaging, MRI, while MRI data are advised to utilize for assessment of concrete strategy of surgical intervention. Under negative ENG and ABR outcomes, on the other hand, MRI is considered as a hardly urgent procedure.
