Tone Decay

This test involves the presentation of a continuous tone to determine whether the threshold for the tone has changed (becomes poorer) over time. The test helps differentiate sensory from neural hearing loss, and is used in the diagnosis of cochlear versus retro cochlear lesions and eighth nerve tumours. While this test is still in use, the auditory evoked potential test is largely used in place of the tone decay test.
