Comprehensive Balance Testing Print Friendly and PDF

We recommend that if you are experiencing dizziness or imbalance that you consult with an Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor first. The ENT doctor may refer you to our office for further testing such as hearing testing or VNG.

Videonystagmography (VNG)

A VNG takes approximately 1-hour and obtains more information about the balance system to help identify the cause of dizziness, light-headedness, and imbalance. The patient wears a pair of goggles with video cameras over their eyes. The eyes are recorded for a light bar test, with the body in different positions and cool and warm air going into each ear.
