"An app has been created but it is not yet available, as ongoing testing and validation has been slowed by the COVID pandemic." "Ultimately, the nomogram could be provided within standard audiometry software for use in the clinic," said Dr. Piccirillo, who is Editor of JAMA Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
