ElectroCochleoGraphy (ECoG) tests are objective assessments used in the diagnosis of Meniere’s disease and other disorders. ECoG tests measure electrical potentials generated in the cochlea, a part of the inner ear, in response to audio stimulation.
During an ECoG test:
In order to ease preparation, refrain from applying facial makeup prior to an ECoG test. Patients are asked to relax and remain still in an exam chair with eyes closed during the test. Afterward, an audiologist will interpret the data and prepare a report to be reviewed by your physician. A follow-up appointment with your physician is typically scheduled five days after the test.
