O/c Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential
Ocular (O) and cervical (c) VEMP testing provides further insight into portions of the vestibular system that are not evaluated in a typical Videonystagmography (VNG) evaluation. VEMP testing evaluates the Utricle, Saccule, as well as the superior and inferior portions of the vestibular nerve. These tests can help physicians in the diagnosis of Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SSCD), peripheral vestibular deficits, and Meniere’s Disease. In combination with VNG and vHIT tests, we can further evaluate the peripheral vestibular system.
