About this study
The present study is designed to examine the sensitivity and specificity of the video head impulse test. The testing performed for this study is routinely ordered by referring physicians and widely used in clinical practice. It is a purpose of this study to determine whether the video head impulse test has sufficient sensitivity and specificity to warrant adding this device to routine clinical practice.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
