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.
