Specializing in the medical evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of brain, spinal cord, nerve and muscle disorders.
Testing begins with observations made by the neurologist during a detailed neurological examination. Testing may also include imaging such as MRI brain and spine, CT scan brain, carotid ultrasound, and laboratory testing. More unusual testing may include a spinal tap to evaluate spinal fluid. Specific electrodiagnostic testing includes EEG (electroencephalography), NCS (nerve conduction studies), EMG (electromyography), SSEP (somatosensory evoked potential), VER (visual evoked response), and BAER (brainstem auditory evoked response).
