Evaluation of psychophysically assessed sensory disturbances

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

Psychophysical tests, including ther­mometry and vibrametry, are used to assess sen­sory function of the specific sensory system. Since sensory tests measure subjective respons­es, and are therefore less objective, evaluation of the patient should take into consideration the influence of various external and internal fac­tors. The tests should therefore be complemented by a thorough physical examination and some others investigations. Neurophysiologically estab­lished abnormalities were confirmed morphologically and neuroradiologically. Sensory tests may be helpful in the differential diagnosis of various dys­functions.
