VNG / ENG Testing

  • VNG / ENG Testing is a battery of non-invasive diagnostic tests for patients with dizziness.
  • These tests can help pinpoint the source of dizziness and correctly diagnose the problem.
  • Correct diagnosis of the problem will lead to the best treatment plan and success rates for the patient.

WHAT DOES VNG / ENG TEST?

  • The inner ear and the eyes are closely linked.
  • The inner ear and the eyes depend on each other for good balance and clear vision.
  • We measure eye movements with infrared cameras which tell us how the inner ear is working.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING VNG / ENG TESTING?

  • The patient will complete a series of tasks and are placed into different positions while their eye movements are measured to look for problems in the inner ear or brain.
  • During a portion of the test, warm and cool water is circulated in the ear canal to test the inner ear.
