Bone conduction audiometry is a form of audiometry used to evaluate hearing loss. It involves the vibration of the skull by direct contact with a stimulator such as a tuning fork. The vibration through the bone bypasses the external and middle ear and effects the cochlear liquid.

Comparing bone conduction thresholds with air conduction thresholds, helps to diagnose the cause of deafness.
