The neurodiagnostic team at FWNC serves patients with a full range of services to detect and treat conditions of the central nervous system including the brain and spinal cord. Testing services include EEGs, electromyography and nerve conduction, evoked potentials, interoperative monitoring, and neuroangiography.
Neurodiagnostic tests have advanced significantly. Modern techniques allow medical professionals to peer inside the brain and monitor activities of the entire central nervous system. Technicians record electrical activity arising from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, or motor nerve systems using a variety of techniques and instruments. This technology is used to aid in the diagnosis of disease and conditions, such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Pinched nerves
- Myasthenia gravis
- Nerve ending disorder
- Muscle disease
From diet and exercise to medication and stress management, FWNC works with patients and their families to preserve their health and help patients achieve a maximum quality of life.
