Diagnostic Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – An MRI is a non-invasive method of rendering images of the inside of all or part of the human body, used in medical diagnostics.

Computerized Axil Tomography (CT Scan) – A CT Scan uses special x-ray equipment to obtain image data from different angles around the body.  Through computer processing of the retrieved data, a cross-section of the body tissues and organs is produced.

Carotid Doppler Ultrasound – A Carotid Doppler Ultrasound is a painless procedure used to measure the blood flow in the two major arteries of the neck (carotid arteries).

Electrophysiology

EEG (Electroencephalogram) – An EEG measures the brain’s electrical activity through electrodes placed on the scalp, which is useful in diagnosing various medical conditions.

EMG/NCV Studies (Electromyography / Nerve Conduction) – EMG/NCV studies are conducted in two steps; first, the response of nerves to electrical stimulation is measured and secondly, the function of muscles are tested through the insertion of tiny needles in to various muscle groups. 

Evoked Responses – An Evoked Response is the recorded response, through the use of attached electrodes, following the presentation of a stimulus.

BAER Responses – BAER, auditory brainstem evoked response, measures the timing of electrical waves from the brainstem in response to auditory stimulation.

Tensilon Testing – Tensilon Testing is performed by the injection of the drug Tensilon in to a vein.  After injection, muscle response is evaluated.

Intra-operative Monitoring – Intra-operative Monitoring is the use of various electrophysiology modalities, such as EEG, EMG, and Evoked Responses, to monitor the functional integrity of neural structures during surgery.

Vestibular Testing

Electronystagography (ENG) – During an ENG, a common testing procedure for the vestibular or balance system, electrodes are placed above and below the eye to measure the electrical activity in response to stimuli.  

Autorotation Testing – Autorotation testing is used to test the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) and proves beneficial in the diagnosis of disorders that cause dizziness, such as vertigo.

Neuro-ophthalmology

Quantitative Visual Field Perimetry – Quantitative Visual Field Perimetry is testing of the patients’ visual field for defects or changes, used to diagnose and evaluate disorders.

Other Services

Inpatient Neurology Consulting – The doctors of ECN work with local hospitals to ensure that patients with neurological disorders receive the best care while hospitalized.

Lumbar Punctures – Lumbar Punctures, also known as spinal taps, are used as a diagnostic tool and for the injection of certain medications.

Biofeedback / Stress Management – Biofeedback is used to help patients deal with pain and stress by allowing them to recognize and control bodily functions that are normally thought of as “automatic”.

Psychological Testing – Psychological Testing can be used to find deficits in cognitive ability due to a neurological condition.
