Towards Providing an Automated Approach to Differentiating the Nystagmus of Ménière’s Disease, Vestibular Migraine, and Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo.


The diagnosis of vertigo is challenging, particularly as patients usually present while asymptomatic.

We have undertaken proof-of-concept work to identify unique properties of nystagmus that could be used to differentiate between three of the most common causes of vertigo: Ménière's disease, vestibular migraine, and Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo.
