Abstract

Introduction: Vertigo is one of the most unpleasant symptoms. Two of the main points of the examinations are the vestibulospinal tests (Romberg test and Unterberger- Fukuda test) can be measured objectively by the ultrasoundcomputer- craniocorpography. Objectives: Using ultrasound-markers on head and shoulders, the ultrasound-computer craniocorpography can measure and analyze the numerical data of statokinetic tests. The study is comparing the parameters of the vestibulospinal tests in different vestibular disorders. Patients and methods: 84 patients were examined. The main parameters in the standing test are the longitudinal and sway, the torticollis angle, and the forehead covering. In the stepping test the main parameters were the longitudinal deviation, the lateral sway, the angular deviation, and the self-spin degree. The patients were divided on normal, unilateral and bilateral peripheral lesion and central lesion groups. Results: The data of the longitudinal and lateral sway and the forehead covering in Romberg test are quite different in the normal and dizzy patients. Conclusions: Ultrasound-computer-craniocorpography is a useful method in the examination of the balance system disorders. The differential diagnostic value is not sufficient alone, we needs other investigations for the topical diagnosis of the vestibular system.
