CT & MRI Brain for Vertigo

" Not helpful to diagnose the common causes of vertigo"

The most common causes of vertigo such as BPPV, Labyrinthitis & Vestibular Neuritis can not be diagnosed with imaging studies and X-Ray.

As for the diagnosis of the POCI, CT brain is not sensitive and MRI is less sensitive when taken within 24 hours of the onset of the symptoms

This means that a negative CT/MRI doesn't mean it rules out a POCI completely

HINTS (bed-side tests) is 100% sensitive and 98% specific for the diagnosis of POCI

Head Thrust Test is sensitive to diagnose the labyrinthitis and vestibular neuritis

Dix-Hallpike is a gold-standard test for the diagnosis of the most common type of BPPV

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is suitable for the frontline clinicians who work in the Emergency Department such as Consultants, Registrars, Junior doctors, AHPs such as Physios, OTs, Advanced Clinical Practitioners & Advanced Nurse Practitioners etc
