Tympanometry has been used for the assessment and management of middle ear pathologies since the early 1970s. It is being employed in screening programs both in preschool and school-age children because it provides a rapid and valid assessment of the middle ear. Computerized interpretation of the tympanogram is expected to make it more acceptable for screening purposes. This paper presents a proposed algorithm for computerized interpretation of the tympanogram based upon a simple model using a shifted exponential square equation.
