Vestibular Testing Information
Your physician has ordered a Videonystagmography (VNG) test to evaluate your balance system. First, you will have a diagnostic hearing evaluation. Then, the balance system of the ear and the brain will be evaluated by recording eye movement in response to changes in head position, viewing moving objects, motion of the body, and thermal stimuli (warm and cold) applied to the ear canal. Special cameras are used to measure these movements. A more detailed explanation will be given during each portion of the test. The testing will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.
