Neurodiagnostics

hero_services_stroke_neurodiag

Electroneurodiagnostics is the study and recording of electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. Qualified, competent and credentialed physicians and technologists may perform these procedures on patients who have suffered a stroke.

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT Scan) : A medical imaging method that combines digital X-ray and computed tomography to generate a three-dimensional image of the internal structure and function of a patient. This combination makes it possible to obtain detailed cross sectional images of internal organs, vessels, and bony structures.

Electronencephalogram (EEG) : records the electrical activity of the brain. It may be used to diagnose epilepsy, head injuries, infections, sleep disorders and other problems. This test may be performed on patients who are awake or sleep deprived.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) : Diagnostic imaging technology that uses a strong magnet and radiofrequency waves to produce images of the body in amazing detail and clarity. Because MRI allows your doctor to see inside your body from any angle with great clarity, it gives doctors a wealth of information very quickly. The MRI is especially useful in diagnosing neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and oncological disorders.
