Determining the cause of neurological dysfunction requires sophisticated diagnostic capabilities. NuHealth’s neuro-diagnostic laboratories are equipped to provide the detailed information our neurologists need to diagnose and treat diseases and disorders of the brain and nerves. Our laboratories include:
- Electroencephalography (EEG) Lab — This laboratory records brain wave function to help diagnose seizures and other related neurological disorders.
- Evoked Potential Lab — A variety of equipment measures patient’s visual, auditory and somatosensory pathways to help diagnose disorders such as multiple sclerosis, hearing loss and other neurological problems.
- Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Lab — Using electrical stimulation to test nerves and muscles, this lab helps diagnose a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders, including muscular dystrophy, peripheral neuropathy, polio and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or “Lou Gehrig’s disease”).
If you are a patient, your neurologist will schedule you for appropriate testing.
If you are a health care provider referring a patient for testing, please call (516) 572-3107.
