The “Dizzy workshop” aims to introduce you to the main clinical tests and investigations used to evaluate dizzy patients. Visual, vestibular and proprioceptive inputs are processed by the central nervous system generating automatic and voluntary actions resulting in our ability to maintain balance and keep the image focused on the retina during movement. By investigating the vestibulo-ocular reflex with VNG (videonystagmography goggles) and V-HIT (video head impulse test) and the vestibulo-spinal reflex (posturography) we can diagnose central and peripheral vestibular lesions.
