Videonystagmography Services

VNG Services provide a series of tests that are used to determine the cause of a patient's dizziness or balance problems, and whether the symptoms are due to inner ear concerns.

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.

NOTE: There is a current weight limitation on equipment capacity of 300 lbs or less.
