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.

Just because most children get ear infections, doesn’t mean that they’re inevitable or untreatable. The truth is that parents and patients struggle to combat middle ear infections because, until now, the only diagnostic tool available was the otoscope developed over 100 years ago. The result? Too much guesswork, too little accuracy, and way too much suffering.
Today there is OtoSight — an innovative approach to seeing beyond the eardrum to the source of middle ear infections. OtoSight technology has a 90.6% accuracy in determining the presence or absence of fluid in the middle ear, even in the presence of significant wax.
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.
The OtoSight Middle Ear Scope is intended for use in children and adults.
