Testing

  1. EEG (electroencephalography). This is a test that measures brain wave activity (brain function), including evaluation of seizures, epilepsy.
  2. Evoked potentials. These tests check the signals of the brain and spinal cord received from other parts of the body, including evaluation of disorders such as multiple sclerosis.
    • Visual evoked potentials (VEP)
    • Brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP)
    • Upper and lower somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs)
  3. EMG/Nerve Conduction Studies. Nerve conduction studies are performed to assess function of nerves and muscles for testing various conditions.
  4. Transcranial Doppler (TCD). TCD assesses the measurement of the blood flow through the carotid arteries inside the brain and the base of the brain. The test is noninvasive. It assesses transient ischemic attacks, strokes, intracranial small blood clots, including evaluation and management of sickle cell disorders.
  5. Video Nystagmography (VNG)
    • Balance assessment
    • Balance therapy
    VNG assesses noninvasive objective diagnosis and cause of dizziness, unsteadiness and balance disorders by analyzing oculomotor responses to visual, positional and caloric stimulus differentiating between peripheral and central vestibular pathology.
