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.
A Computed Tomography (CT scan) is a medical imaging tes which combines taking multiple X-ray pictures of the inside of the body. Nicklaus Children's utilizes a low dose radiation CT Scanner.
Cardiopulmonary Function Tests
Cardiopulmonary function tests refers to a broad range of tests used to monitor the function of the heart and lungs. The tests range from exercise tests to spirometry to other forms of testing.
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.
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging is used in the surgical planning of delicate brain surgeries and it also has the potential to provide insight into neurologic and psychiatric disorders by showing brain activity.
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.
Polysomnography is a diagnostic sleep test conducted on a child while they sleep to diagnose sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in children.
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.
Ultrasound is a medical imaging test that uses sound waves emanating from a special machine to produce images of the body. The test is frequently used to produce images of infants before they are born. When ultrasound is used to generate images of the spine, this is known as a spinal ultrasound.
