Vestibular Function Tests

Sydney Neurology now offers state of the art vestibular function testing for assessment of dizziness to complement our comprehensive range of neurological and neurophysiological services.  We use the latest Otometrics equipment to provide rapid, accurate assessment of dizziness, balance disorders and eye movement disorders. Vestibular function tests, which include video head impulse testing and vestibular evoked myogenic potentials, are helpful in the diagnosis of vestibular neuritis, Meniere’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, vestibular migraine and superior canal dehiscence. Where required, Dr Luke Chen can provide formal neuro-otological consultation.
