Ear infections have traditionally been diagnosed with the use of an otoscope, essentially a penlight and magnifying glass developed over 150 years ago. Traditional otoscopy offers a high-level of variability and subjective observation based on the clinician experience and patient cooperation.

Treating patients effectively isn’t just your job, it’s your motivation. But when it comes to children complaining of ear discomfort, the standard tool to address the issue is the otoscope — basically a flashlight and a magnifying glass. The result? A diagnosis accuracy rate of 50% with standard otoscopy.*

Today there’s the FDA-cleared OtoSight Middle Ear Scope — an innovative approach to non-invasively visualize through the eardrum to directly assess middle ear fluid.
Instant on-screen view of the eardrum and middle ear informs clinical judgement in real time. These results allow the clinician to determine the presence or absence of fluid in the middle ear, characterize the type of fluid, visualize the fluid's density, and can do all of this even in the presence of significant earwax.
Captured in seconds, similarly to standard otoscopy, the true color video otoscopy view of the ear canal and eardrum allows the patient to see what the clinician sees, in real time. This empowers the patient to better understand their ear condition and resulting treatment plan.
The objective OtoScan obtained by the OtoSight Middle Ear Scope provides valuable information to help clinicians remove the subjectivity in the diagnosis of infections and associated ear health ailments.
