This presentation describes the use of the ICS Impulse for the assessment of the oculomotor pathway in patients with vestibular pathology. Specific attention will be given regarding which tests analyse similar neurological pathways. The use of a different protocol using the ICS goggles compared to using the traditional VNG protocol will be explored.
- After this course, the participant will be able to describe the clinical relevance of the different assessments within the ICS system
- After this course, the participant will be able to visualize the vestibular and neurological pathways of varying assessments on the VNG and ICS systems
- After this course, the participant will be able to identify which VNG and ICS assessments are assessing the similar neurological pathways
