Diagnosis and Treatment

We use a variety of advanced tools and techniques to diagnose your neurological condition and treat it at the source. These include:

  • Computed tomography (CT) – A type of noninvasive imaging that enables physicians to visualize the brain.
  • CT perfusion – Shows which areas of the brain are adequately supplied with blood (perfused) and provides detailed information about blood flow to the brain.
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) – Measures electrical activity of the brain.
  • Electromyography (EMG) – Measures electrical activity of muscles and nerves.
  • Injections for back and neck pain when oral medication does not relieve pain.
  • Interventional radiology – The use of medical imaging to guide physicians as they perform various minimally invasive surgical procedures.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – Uses a strong magnetic field to generate 2-D and 3-D images of the brain and neck.
  • Nuclear medicine – The use of radioactive materials to examine how organs and tissue are functioning.
  • Radiation oncology – The use of high doses of radiation to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells.
