Giddiness / Vertigo
Giddiness & Balance Assessments
As part of our comprehensive hearing health services, we perform a range of giddiness and balance assessment tests in a specialised facility within our centre.
VNG is a series of tests where eye movements are recorded by infrared camera while the patient lies in different positions. By assessing eye movements during these tests, the possible causes of dizziness or balance disorders may be identified.
This is a test used to examine electrical potentials in the inner ear elicited by sound stimulation. It can be useful for diagnosing Meniere’s disease.
Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP)
This is a test used to evaluate one portion of the balance organ known as the saccules. Muscle activation is recorded by electrodes placed on the neck when sound is presented.
