MFT has the potential to become the standard of care when dealing with possible middle ear pathologies. By applying those applications appropriate to the individual practice, and with a reasonable marketing effort, the cost of MFT-capable equipment should be readily recoverable.

Finally, and most importantly, MFT is being shown in the current literature to be a better diagnostic tool than traditional tympanometry and to improve the level of care being provided to many clients by the audiologist and the physician. In my mind, this alone justifies the expenditure.
