Tests for Acoustic Neuroma

In order to make an acoustic neuroma diagnosis, the healthcare provider will ask a number of questions about your medical history, perform a physical exam, and recommend a number of acoustic neuroma tests.
 
The tests your healthcare provider may recommend to help in diagnosing acoustic neuroma include:
 
  • Hearing test (audiogram)
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans, enhanced with intravenous dye (contrast)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), enhanced with intravenous dye (contrast).
     
These tests are critical in the early detection of an acoustic neuroma and are helpful in determining the location and size of a tumor and in planning its removal.
