Diagnostic Testing for Neurological Disorders in Tucson, Phoenix, and Goodyear, AZ
Diagnostic testing is one of the most important disciplines in neurology and neurosurgery. Using some of the latest technology and highly skilled diagnostic technicians and physicians, Western Neuro can provide neurologic diagnostic testing in Phoenix, followed by accurate diagnoses, resulting in effective, targeted treatment.
Additional diagnostic testing is often performed an Abrazo Health hospital, where patients have the full spectrum of medical specialties at their disposal.
Western Neuro physicians were instrumental in the design and use of intraoperative CT scanning, a diagnostic tool that offers neurosurgeons a better view of the success of the procedure intraoperatively, saving time and lives. Our intraoperative CT scanning know-how has been emulated in neurosurgical suites around the country.
Common diagnostic tools that we utilize for diagnostic testing for neurological disorders in Phoenix include:
- Intraoperative CT Scanning: This diagnostic imaging provides surgeons with real-time CT scan images to support minimally invasive image-guided cranial, spine, and trauma surgeries.
- Electroencephalogram (EEG): EEG is one of the main diagnostic tests for epilepsy. It detects electrical activity in the brain using electrodes attached to the scalp.
- Electromyography (EMG): This diagnostic test is used to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them. EMG can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction, or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
- Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV): Also called a nerve conduction study, this test measures how fast an electrical impulse moves through a nerve. NCV is used to identify nerve damage. This test is often performed at the same time as an EMG, as both tests can help find the presence, location, and extent of diseases that damage the nerves and muscles.
