ANSAR (Autonomic Nervous System Response)

An advanced test to evaluate abnormalities in the Autonomic Nervous System, which controls functions such as heart rate, breathing, and even digestion. This ten-minute test provides useful information on the nervous system’s response to its environment.

Botox

Muscle relaxing agent used to treat specific cases of chronic migraine as well as movement disorders such as tremor and spasticity.

EEG and VEEG (Electroencephalography)

Measures electrical activity along the scalp to evaluate for abnormal firing of brain waves. It is especially effective for identifying seizures as well as their location.

EMG (Electromyography)

An important technique that records the electrical activity of skeletal muscles and aids in the detection of abnormalities in muscles, nerves, and the junctions between them.

Lumbar Puncture

Often referred to as a “spinal tap”, this diagnostic test is performed to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for microbiological analysis. At times, it can be used as a treatment to relieve increased intracranial pressure.

Nerve Biopsy

A diagnostic test used in specific cases in which a small segment of a nerve is removed and thereafter examined microscopically for underlying abnormalities.

NCS (Nerve Conduction Study)

An effective procedure for evaluating numbness, tingling, burning, and weakness of the extremities. It is often used for assessing conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Sciatica as well as many other nerve disorders.

NeuroTrax

Computerized technology that is used to evaluate memory, attention, problem solving, and executive function. This test can be particularly helpful in evaluating cognitive impairments ranging from Alzheimer’s Dementia to Attention Deficit Disorder.

Polysomnography (Sleep Study)

A valuable diagnostic tool that records the changes that occur during sleep. It is commonly used to evaluate sleep disorders such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Narcolepsy, and Periodic Limb Movements of Sleep.

Sudoscan

A quick, noninvasive tool for evaluating small nerve dysfunction by measuring sweat gland function in the hands and feet. Sudoscan seamlessly assesses for the possibility of neuropathy particularly in patients with Diabetes Mellitus.

Trancranial Doppler (TCD)

A dynamic method for measuring the velocity of blood flow through the brain’s blood vessels. Using ultrasound technique, Transcranial Doppler can detect structural abnormalities of important blood vessels within the brain, which may increase the risk of stroke.

VNG (Video Nystagmography)

A noninvasive technology that is used for testing the inner ears and is particularly useful in the evaluation of dizziness and balance difficulties.
