Ear infections have traditionally been diagnosed with the use of a tool that’s over 150 years old called an otoscope. It’s essentially a combo penlight and magnifying glass. So there must be a better way to view your child’s ear, right? There is now, it’s called the OtoSight, and it can give you and your doctor a clear picture of your child’s ear health.

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 The truth is that parents and patients struggle to combat middle ear infections because of the outdated tool that’s used, the otoscope. An otoscope gives doctors a 50/50 shot at best when diagnosing an ear infection, and that’s because it was invented over 150 years ago. The result? Too much guesswork, too little accuracy, and way too much suffering.
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.
