Diseases and Disorders

The following are major types of neurological disorders:
  • Neurogenetic diseases (such as Huntington's disease and muscular dystrophy)
  • Developmental disorders (such as cerebral palsy)
  • Degenerative diseases (such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease)
  • Metabolic diseases (such as Gaucher's disease)
  • Cerebrovascular diseases (such as stroke and vascular dementia)
  • Trauma (such as spinal cord injury and head injury)
  • Convulsive disorders (such as epilepsy)
  • Infectious diseases (such as AIDS dementia)
  • Brain tumors

What to Bring to Your Appointment/ Patient Forms:

  • Your insurance card
  • Physician referral forms if required by insurance. All Medicare patients must have a written script from their referring doctor
  • A list of current prescription or over-the-counter medications you are taking, including dose and frequency

Neurodiagnostic Services

We provide a wide range of specialised neurological diagnostic tests which include:

01. Electroencephalogram (EEG)

An electroencephalogram (EEG or brain wave test) is a non-invasive procedure used to detect and record brain cell activity; variations or abnormalities in brain waves may suggest the following:

  • Attention deficit disorders (e.g.. ADHD)
  • Seizure disorders (e.g., epilepsy)
  • Tumors or abscesses in the brain
  • Head injury
  • Encephalitis and other inflammatory diseases
  • Cerebral haemorrhages
  • Stroke (Cerebral infarct)
  • Sleep disorders
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Migraines (in some cases)
  • Hallucinations
  • Loss of consciousness (Syncope)
  • Vertigo

02. Electromyography (EMG) / Nerve Conduction Velocity(NCV)

Small needle sensors (electrodes) are used to record the electrical activity in selected muscles and peripheral nerves during rest and as they contract during movement. The electrodes transmit this information to a machine that provides a graphic representation of the muscles’ electrical discharge; the resulting data show how well the muscles work.

Electroneurography, which evaluates the function of nerves in a similar manner, is often performed at the same time as EMG in order to fully evaluate people experiencing weakness or paralysis..

03. Evoked Potential Tests (VER, BAER and SSEP)

Evoked potential tests measure the brain's response to stimuli that are delivered through sight, hearing, or touch. These sensory stimuli are recorded with patch-like sensors (electrodes) that are attached to the scalp and skin over various peripheral sensory nerves. These tests are used to monitor brain activity and nerve signals as well as in aiding the diagnosis of nervous system lesions and abnormalities.
