• Vertigo Diagnosis and Tests

Diagnosis and Tests

Vertigo can be assessed in a clinical setting with the help of present and past medical history, drug or family history.

A thorough physical examination also helps greatly to assess vertigo.

This can be followed by certain investigations that help to get a diagnosis of the exact cause of vertigo. Investigations include:

  • Blood tests
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Electro-nystagmography
  • CT Scan of the head
  • Lumbar puncture
  • MRI scan of head and MRA scan of blood vessels of the brain
