Diagnostic testing is one of the most important disciplines in neurology and neurosurgery. Using the very latest technology and highly skilled diagnostic technicians and physicians, Western Neuro can provide accurate diagnoses resulting in effective, targeted treatment.
Additional diagnostic testing is often performed at Carondelet, where patients have the full spectrum of medical specialties at their disposal.
Indeed, Western Neuro physicians were instrumental in the design and use of intra-operative CT scanning, a diagnostic tool that offers neurosurgeons a better view of the success of the procedure intraoperatively, saving time and lives. Our intra-operative CT scanning know-how has been emulated in neurosurgical suites around the country.
Common diagnostic tools include:
- Intra-operative CT Scanning
- Electroencephalogram (EEG)
- Electromyography (EMG)
- Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV)
