Neurology diagnostic methods in Israel
In neurology accurate diagnosis - not an easy task, since the spectrum of non-specific symptoms is very wide. However, experience and high qualification of the Israeli doctors and clinics equipped with modern equipment allow us to determine the disease as soon as possible. A neurologist may assign the following diagnostic techniques:
Electromyography (EMG) - measures muscle response to nervous stimulation of the muscles. During the study, one or more thin needles, which are electrodes inserted through the skin into the muscle. You may feel a little pain, but it's usually painless. This diagnostic method used to detect neuromuscular disorders. EMG results can help your doctor determine the cause of muscle pain, paralysis, involuntary muscle twitches (tics).
Electroencephalography (EEG) - to determine abnormalities in the electrical activity of your brain, the so-called "brain waves." During the procedure, electrodes, which are small metal discs glued onto the scalp. They can detect the tiny electrical charges resulting from the activity of brain cells. The charges are amplified and displayed as a graph on a computer screen, after which the doctor interprets the readings. Thus, diagnose diseases such as epilepsy, encephalopathy, and others.
Cerebral angiogram - x-ray of blood vessels. This diagnostic method to determine the stroke. To do this, the doctor inserts a catheter into a major blood vessel, and introduces a contrast dye through which the X-ray image are clearly visible blood vessels of the brain, head or neck. In their state is determined by the presence of the disease.
Lumbar puncture (puncture spinal cord) is carried out for the diagnosis of diseases such as meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis, headaches of unknown cause. For this procedure, the doctor inserts a hollow needle into the space surrounding the spine in the lower back to extract a bit of cerebrospinal fluid, which is then examined under a microscope.
Other types of studies in various neurological disorders:
- BNA Technology.
- Methods of VEP-VEPA.
