The newly launched lab is expected to enhance health and advance capabilities in diagnosing and treating vestibular disorders. Further, this facility is available in multiple AFMS ENT centres which will aid in multi-centric research.

The comprehensive vestibular lab offers a range of diagnostic features including the Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) test which is used to diagnose vestibular toxicity and peripheral vestibulopathy, usually caused by ototoxic drugs.

Additionally, it offers computerised stabilometry (posturography) which helps in the functional evaluation of the postural control system in its steady-state behaviour. It further measures the outcome of vestibular rehabilitation by assessing the patient’s balance control on the postural sway velocity.

The advanced laboratory was inaugurated by Lt Gen Arindam Chatterjee, DGMS (Army) and Col Comdt AMC,

On the occasion, Lt Gen Daljit Singh, DGAFMS, congratulated the base hospital team on the establishment of the lab. According to him, the lab will open newer diagnostic horizons and incorporate practices in the training of ENT surgeons.
