In brief: MRI

Cerebellar ataxia is a description of examination.
Causes can be congenital, degenerative, caused by chronic damage from alcohol or dilantin, or associated with structural defects of the cerebellum. It can also be an indication of cerebellar tumor. Many patients following head injury recover with poor coordination and ataxia due to damage to the deep structures of the brain.
