Overview

Audiometry as the best initial screening test for the diagnosis of acoustic neuroma. It can detect asymmetric sensorineural hearing impairment in about 95% of the patients. Brain stem-evoked response audiometry (ABR, BAER, or BSER) may be done in some cases with unexplained asymmetries in standard audiometric testing as a further screening measure and an abnormal auditory brain stem response test should be followed by an MRI.
