Abstract

Despite the appeal of an objective measure for determining frequency-specific hearing thresholds, the integration of ASSR into everyday practice has not been embraced; many clinics citing poor correlations with behavioral auditory thresholds. This retrospective study compared thresholds obtained from both ASSR and behavioral audiometry to demonstrate a strong correlation between ASSR and behavioral thresholds as a function of frequency and degree of hearing loss. Results demonstrate ASSR is an effective measure for threshold estimation for ongoing treatment of hearing loss.
