Diagnostic testing is one of the most important disciplines in neurology and neurosurgery. Using the some of the latest technology and highly skilled diagnostic technicians and physicians, Western Neuro provides neurological diagnostics in Tucson, Arizona followed by accurate diagnoses, resulting in effective, targeted treatment.
Additional diagnostic testing is often performed at Carondelet Health Network hospitals, where patients have the full spectrum of medical specialties at their disposal.
Western Neuro physicians were instrumental in the design and use of intraoperative CT scanning, a diagnostic tool that offers neurosurgeons a better view of the success of the procedure intraoperatively, saving time and lives. Our intraoperative CT scanning know-how has been emulated in neurosurgical suites around the country.
Common diagnostic tools that we utilize for diagnostic testing for neurological disorders in Tucson include:
• Intraoperative CT Scanning: Provides surgeons with real-time CT scan images to support minimally invasive image-guided cranial, spine, and trauma surgeries.
• Electroencephalogram (EEG): One of the main diagnostic tests for epilepsy, it detects electrical activity in the brain using electrodes attached to the scalp.
• Electromyography (EMG): Used to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them.
• Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV): Measures how fast an electrical impulse moves through a nerve to identify nerve damage. This test is often performed at the same time as an EMG, as both tests can help find the presence, location, and extent of diseases that damage the nerves and muscles.
