Patients with neurological conditions such as altered mental status, seizures, stroke, dementia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more are commonly referred to our facility for testing.
Neurodiagnostic testing includes EEG (Electroencephalogram), NCS (Nerve Conduction Study), EMG (Electromyogram), and TCD (Transcranial Doppler).
All of these tests require a physician’s order.

Common conditions that warrant an EEG include Altered Mental Status, Syncope, Seizure, Stroke, and Dementia.
Nerve Conduction Studies

Common conditions that warrant a Nerve Conduction Study include neuropathy, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or radiculopathy.
Transcranial Doppler Testing
Performed by a Registered Therapist using an ultrasound probe to view the arteries that are located in the brain.
Conditions that warrant this test include stenosis, vasospasm, and stroke.
