Videonystagmography Services

VNG Services provide testing to people with inner ear and balance problems.

VNG (videonystagmogram) tests are done on people who have problems with:

  • dizziness
  • loss of balance

The assessment helps determine whether a patient's dizziness is caused by inner ear disease, e.g. benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s or some other cause.
