Memorial Neuroscience Center at Memorial Hospital West
Some of the most advanced technology is available at Memorial Neuroscience Center to assist physicians in effectively diagnosing neurological disorders and injuries. Computerized axial tomography (CAT) scans magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) spinal taps and EEG (electroencephalography) are among the many specialized neurological tests available. In addition electromyography/nerve conduction velocity testing (EMG/NCV) helps to diagnose nerve and muscle problems and sleep EEGs allow neurologists to evaluate nerve patterns in adults and children who may be experiencing seizure activity during sleep. Another test Somato Sensory Evoked Potential uses painless electrical stimulation to help evaluate the location and extent of nerves damaged by disease or trauma.
