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 analyze similar neurological pathways. The use of a different protocol using the ICS goggles compared to using the traditional VNG protocol will be explored.
There are 3 handouts that are included with this event, a handout of the PPT slides, a transcript and a Q and A with the presenters that will help clarify the information presented in this class.
