The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance characteristics and the clinical utility of the video head impulse test (vHIT) in assessing vestibular function or hypofunction in dizzy patients and to determine if including a catch-up saccade (CS) analysis would increase the sensitivity and specificity of the test. Secondary objectives included describing the characteristics of certain peripheral vestibular pathologies in relation to vHIT and other tests of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) function.
