Electrical activity generated by the brain is recorded to evaluate epilepsy or suspected seizures. It may also be useful for evaluating behavioral changes and learning or developmental problems in children.
Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
Used to examine diseases of the nerves and muscles, EMG evaluates the electrical activity of muscles and NCS stimulate the nerves and record responses from muscles and sensory nerves. These tests are often performed together to pinpoint causes of numbness, tingling, extremity pain or weakness.
Visual evoked testing and auditory evoked testing used to diagnose muscular sclerosis and various other neurologic conditions.
State-of-the-art testing and evaluation of sleeping patient, incorporating respiration and heart rate monitoring, as well as brainwave, heart rhythm, blood oxygen, eye movement, and limb movement monitoring.
Transcranial Doppler (TCD)
A test that measures the velocity of blood flow through the brain's blood vessels. Used in stroke care to help in the diagnosis of emboli, stenosis, vasospasm from a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding from a ruptured aneurysm), and other problems.
