Videonystagmography (VNG)

Videonystagmography VNG

Videonystagmography (VNG) is the gold standard test for evaluating dizziness, balance and visual tracking disorders involving the vestibular system (within the inner ear).  While wearing infrared goggles that transmit data to a computer, the patient undergoes a series of eye tracking and head movement tests. By measuring specific peripheral and central mechanisms governing eye movements as well as eye and vestibular reflexes, we can then assess the functional state of various areas of the brain.

With the results of VNG testing, a specific brain-based rehabilitation programs is formulated for the patient include eye movement therapy, reaction time tests, coordination tasks, and vestibular exercises.
