With chapters from audiology professionals from around the world, Advances in Audiology and Hearing Science presented in two volumes—provides an abundance of information on the latest technological and procedural advances in this ever-improving field.
Volume 1 primarily focuses on revised clinical protocols and provides information on new research to help guide decisions and criteria regarding diagnosis, management, and treatment of hearing-related issues. Topics include new clinical applications such as auditory steady-state response, wideband acoustic immittance, otoacoustic emissions, frequency following response, noise exposure, genomics and hearing loss, and more. The volume also includes a section on canine audiology, allowing students and professionals a broader exposure to hearing science.
