Answer

In the course of evaluating patients with vestibular and balance disorders, additional tests that are commonly considered include audiometry, vestibular tests, blood tests, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Such testing, especially vestibular testing, must be tailored to the history and physical findings in each case.
