Diagnostic and Practical Value of Craniocorpography in Vertiginous Syndromes

  • C. F. Claussen
Conference paper


Sensations of rotation or dizziness and nausea are the subjective symptoms characteristic of vertiginous syndromes; nystagmus and oscillations of the head and body are the objective signs. Craniocorpography is a method for recording and measuring these oscillations. Rapidly and inexpensively it provides easier diagnosis,, follow-up, and measurement of therapeutic effectiveness. In this double-blind trial, the author has demonstrated the beneficial effects of Ginkgo biloba extract in vertiginous syndromes without obvious anatomical localisation.
