Neurocritical care Unit
Neurocritical care is a medical field that treats life-threatening diseases of the nervous system and identifies, prevents, and treats secondary brain injury.
CT scans show a slice, or cross-section, of the body. The image shows your bones, organs, and soft tissues more clearly than standard x-rays. CT scans can show a tumor’s shape, size, and location. They can even show the blood vessels that feed the tumor – all without having to cut into the patient.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technology that produces three dimensional detailed anatomical images. It is often used for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring.
Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
Nerve conduction study (NCS)
A nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test — also called a nerve conduction study (NCS) — measures how fast an electrical impulse moves through your nerve. NCV can identify nerve damage.
Repetitive nerve Stimulation (RNS)
Repetitive nerve stimulation (RNS) test is fundamentally an electrophysiologic study for the differential diagnosis of neuromuscular junction (NMJ) disorders, although there are considerable limitations in its diagnostic sensitivity and specificity.
Evoked potentials (VEP)
Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) represent a valid electrophysiological tool in neurological pathologies. VEPs are the expression of the electrical activity of the visual pathways up to the optic nerve to the calcarine cortex.
The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a medical test used to measure the electrical activity of the brain. A number of electrodes are applied to your scalp. EEG can help diagnose a number of conditions including epilepsy, sleep disorders and brain tumours.
