Otoscopy

 

examination of the external auditory meatus and tympanic membrane for the purpose of diagnosing diseases or performing operations under direct visual control. Otoscopy uses a light source, a frontal mirror (which acts as a reflector), and a set of aural specula. A biconvex magnifying lens is used for more detailed otoscopy.
