Comprehensive Testing To Assess CNS Related Causes of Dizziness
Topple Dizziness is a general, umbrella term that encompasses a variety of symptoms that impairspatial perception. While peripheral causes of dizziness are more common than those arisingfrom the CNS, neurologists are frequently called on to assess patients who complain of dizziness. Dizziness constitutes 25% of neurology outpatient referrals and 13% of emergency department (ED) neurology consultations. As such, it is imperative for neurologists to be aware of common CNS causes of dizziness. Topple increases a neurology practices' “awareness” to accurately evaluate patients with imbalance and dizziness. Coupled with accurate diagnostics, Topple is a great additional source of income.
