Der Video-Kopfimpulstest

Conference paper

Zusammenfassung

Mit der klinischen Einführung der thermischen Prüfung durch Bárány zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts war dieser Rezeptorfunktionstest die wichtigste Methode zur seitengetrennten Evaluierung der Funktion der horizontalen Bogengänge. 1988 beschrieben Halmagyi und Curthoys erstmals den so genannten Kopfimpulstest (Halmagyi u. Curthoys 1988). Die Weiterentwicklung dieser Methode (klinischer Kopfimpulstest) hat in den letzten Jahren zum so genannten Video-Kopfimpulstest (vKIT) geführt (Bartl et al. 2009; Lehnen et al. 2010; Ulmer u. Chays 2005; MacDougall et al. 2009; Weber et al. 2008a,b, 2009). Der vKIT ermöglicht heute die Visualisierung des vestibulookulären Reflexes (VOR) und damit eine Objektivierung von Störungen aller drei Bogengänge jeder Seite.
