Introduction. A detailed evaluation of the quality of operation
of automatic auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) detection
system should be based on determination of its performance
using data recorded during a typical clinical duty.
Aim. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate performance
of a novel ABR detection system for clinical data.
Material and methods. The system relies on a computer algorithm
based on the methodology used in the fields of statistics
and signal processing. It was tested using a large number of ABRs
recorded in a group of people with normal hearing and in a group
of patients with sensorineural hearing loss. Results from the
system were compared with those from human experts.
Results. Results from the system showed a high consistency
with expert assessments for a set of ABR tests recorded both
in people with normal hearing and in those with sensorineural
Conclusions. The developed system could be useful as a module
supporting the person assessing ABR results during typical
