short increment sensitivity index
(SISI) tones of 1- to 5-decibel increments in intensity and lasting 0.5 second are superimposed on a continuous (carrier) tone of the same frequency at random intervals, the carrier tone being 20 decibels above the speech reception threshold; only patients with cochlear damage can detect these increments.
