Vertigo ENG Testing

Vertigo is a common vestibular disorder that people of all ages can suffer from, but it is more common in older adults. Dr. Kay can diagnose patients with vertigo and treat them to help them overcome symptoms like imbalance or nausea.

Electronystagmography (ENG) testing is a procedure that tests disorders in the peripheral nervous system. It is a low-risk procedure that can tell you if your vertigo is coming from your brain or in your inner ear. After the test, Dr. Kay can move forward with prescribing the best way to treat your vertigo.

“The test may be performed if an individual is experiencing unexplained dizziness, vertigo, or hearing loss. Additional conditions in which ENG may be performed are an acoustic neuroma, labyrinthitis, Usher syndrome, and Meniere’s disease. If a known lesion exists this test can identify the actual site.
