Otoscope in a silk-lined case


An otoscope is an instrument used to examine a patient's interior auditory canal, including the ear drum. An otoscope is frequently used to search for problems indicating the causes of ear ache, discharge, tinnitus, deafness and other problems associated with the auditory canal. The instrument itself consists of a handle with a battery to power a light for clearer viewing, and several different detachable heads of varying size and shape.
