Neurological Diagnostics and Treatments
3-D brain imaging with co-registration of the images
3-D brain imaging is a type of MRI that is so detailed that it can be reformatted, and viewed
from any direction. It is used to give health care providers a complete picture of the
Behavioral modification is a treatment method that attempts to change negative behaviors through the use of positive or negative reinforcement.
A brain scan is an imaging technique that evaluates brain structure and/or function of the brain. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography are the two most common types of brain scans, but others may also be used.
Ultrasound is a medical imaging test that uses sound waves emanating from a special machine to produce images of the body. When ultrasound is used to generate images of the brain, this is known as a brain ultrasound.
Electroencephalogram, or EEG, detects brain activity using electrodes attached to the scalp. It is a medical test performed to diagnose epilepsy among other brain disorders.
Evoked potentials is a test used to measure the responses of the nervous system to specific stimuli.
High-resolution brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
A brain magnetic resonance imaging test is a medical procedure used to take pictures of the brain. It differs from CT scans in that it does not use radiation.
Intraoperative Brain Mapping
Intraoperative brain mapping is a form of brain surgery performed while the patient is awake. It is done for patients with tumors or lesions near critical functional brain regions and require the patient to be responsive and able to communicate with the surgeon during the procedure.
Language mapping refers to a series of tests used to test brain function in patients with epilepsy and other disorders.
MR Guided Focused Ultrasound
This technology allows surgeons to precisely heat and destroy the target tumor, without opening the scalp, skull or injuring the surrounding healthy brain tissue.
Neurological Diagnostic Tests
Neurological diagnostic tests refers to a broad range of tests used to diagnose certain brain-related disorders and other diseases. A number of tests fall in the category of neurological diagnostic tests.
A neuropsychological test is a medical exam to evaluate the function of the brain. It’s often used for assessing the brain and behavior after an injury or as the result of a central nervous system disease.
Psychotherapy is a form of therapy and counseling that is conducted by a mental health professional, for example a psychologist, a licensed mental health counselor, social worker or a psychiatrist.
Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography
Single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) is a nuclear imaging test that shows brain/other organ function by measuring blood flow in the brain/organ.
Spinal Magnetic Resonance Imaging
A spinal magnetic resonance imaging test is a medical procedure used to take pictures of the spine. Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is performed using magnetic fields and radio waves. It differs from CT scans in that it does not use radiation.
