Tests And Procedures

In the world of medicine, neurological disorders are the most challenging to diagnose, manage and monitor due to the complex nervous system.

How a diagnosis of such a disorder is delivered can have a positive or detrimental effect on the person receiving the diagnosis, both with how they cope with the diagnosis and how and why they seek care.

Neurocare assists patients in achieving their overall health goals through awareness.

Highly qualified specialist doctors with many years of experience ensure that our extraordinarily high standards are met.

Procedures

Performed

Cardiac Echo

An echocardiogram (echo) is a test that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make pictures of your heart. During an echo test, ultrasound (high frequency sound waves) from a hand-held wand placed on your chest provides pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers and helps the sonographer evaluate the pumping action.

Venous Doppler

A Doppler ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your arms and legs. This test can detect abnormal flow within an artery or blood vessel and can help to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including blood clots and poor circulation. If you show signs of decreased blood flow in the arteries or veins of your legs, arms, or neck, your doctor may suggest you to take this test.

EEG

The diagnosis of epilepsy relies on a combination of clinical history taking, EEG and brain imaging. The clinical history is obtained during the initial encounter and includes a thorough review of seizures/events and known epilepsy risk factors, in addition to a neurological examination. The EEG, or electroencephalogram, is the most important test in the evaluation of individuals presenting with possible seizures or events of unknown nature.

Botox for Migraine and Spasticity

· Botox will help decrease migraine frequency.
· Botox injection will help release muscle spasticity.

Transcranial Doppler

Transcranial Doppler (TCD) and transcranial color Doppler (TCCD) are types of Doppler ultrasonography that use sound waves to measure the velocity of blood flow through the brain's blood vessels. It is used to determine if there is anything happening in the blood vessels that is affecting blood flow to the brain.

EMG/Nerve Conduction Study

EMG or electromyography is a neurodiagnostic test used to diagnose neurological disorders including but not limited to radiculopathy (nerve impingements), neuropathy, nerve entrapment and neuromuscular disease like miopathy, ALS and muscular distrophy.

Lower Extremety Venous Doppler

A Doppler ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your arms and legs. This test can detect abnormal flow within an artery or blood vessel and can help to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including blood clots and poor circulation. If you have leg pain or swelling, or if you have had a previous history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), your doctor may suggest you to take this test.

Carotid Ultrasound

Carotid Ultrasound is a diagnostic test that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries. This test is safe and painless. It tests for blocked or narrowed carotid arteries, which can increase the risk of stroke.
