Highly qualified technologists and electroencephalographers perform and interpret a wide range of neurodiagnostic tests that aid physicians in the identification of various neurological diseases. These illnesses include seizure disorders, headaches, brainstem dysfunctions, and other nervous system disorders.It offers a wide variety of neurophysiologic examinations to diagnose illnesses of the central nervous system. The facilities available at Manipal Hospital, Yeshwanthpur, include EEG, video EEG telemetry, ENMG, VEP, SSEP, and BAER.
Diagnostic Testing for Neurological Disorders
The Center's EEG technicians provide high-quality comprehensive care for newborns, children, and adults, utilizing the most recent technological and scientific developments, such as:
Modern digital and video EEG technology is used to diagnose migraines, dizziness, stroke, and fainting episodes.
Transcranial Doppler is a painless, non-invasive ultrasound device that evaluates blood circulation within the brain to assist estimate the risk of strokes and other diseases.
Sight, brainstem auditory, and somatosensory evoked potential investigations are used to diagnose visual and hearing deficits, as well as nerve injury within the spinal cord or nerve roots.
The facilities which are provided in the neuropsychology lab include a wide range of examinations and services which are very crucial for a patient's effective diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. The facilities provided at our neurophysiology hospital in Yeshwanthpur are as follows-
An EEG is a non-invasive procedure that records the electrical activity of the brain. Electrodes are implanted on the scalp during the process to study brain function. It performs EEGs using cutting-edge digital and video technologies, capturing up to 32 channels of EEG and video simultaneously. Our cutting-edge digital technology analyses each patient's data electronically, resulting in extremely accurate results important for identifying seizure disorders, headaches, dizziness, stroke, and fainting episodes.
BAER or brainstem auditory evoked response
The brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) test assesses how your brain processes sound. The BAER test measures your brainwaves when you respond to clicks or other audio tones. A brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) or auditory brainstem response (ABR) test is another name for this examination.
A BAER test can assist in the diagnosis of hearing loss and nervous system diseases, particularly in newborns, young children, and those who may be unable to participate in a traditional hearing test. Book an appointment today for the diagnosis through BAER test.
VEP or visual evoked potential
An evoked potential induced by a visual stimulus, such as an alternating checkerboard pattern on a computer screen, is known as a visual evoked potential. Responses from electrodes placed on the back of your head are recorded and shown as a readout on an electroencephalogram (EEG).
