The Tinnitus Magnitude Index (TMI) is a short tinnitus questionnaire that assesses the subjective perception of tinnitus loudness. Originally, Schmits et al. developed the TMI in English. This study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of a Korean translation of the TMI.
A Korean version of the TMI was administrated 215 subjects reporting tinnitus. Construct validity was evaluated using the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI). Puretone audiometry, speech audiometry, and tinnitogram were also assessed.
A significant and moderate correlation was found between the TMI and the THI-total scale. The TMI was the most significant correlated with the THI-functional subscale. The TMI also had high internal consistency reliability, confirming the questionnaire’s stability.
The results suggested that the Korean version of the TMI might be a valuable validity and reliability. The Korean version of TMI could be an effective tool to quantify the impact of tinnitus.
