Center for Neurology

The Center performs a large spectrum of neurological test and diagnostics. It is well-equipped for comprehensive functional diagnostics of both peripheral and central nervous systems, including brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. Performed test also include rarely used methods, such as neuromuscular junction testing, and the ever more popular cognitive evoked potentials. At the Center, patients can also undergo their first neurological examinations and continuous specialist monitoring for neuromuscular diseases, epilepsy, demyelinating diseases, Parkinsonism and dementia.

Nicolet EDX equipment with Synergy software is used for electromyography (EMNG) and cortical evoked potentials (EP – AEP, BAER, VEP, ERP, P300) testing. This test is utilized for distinguishing neurogenic from myopathic weaknesses and atrophy, establishing the diagnosis of the nerve root, peripheral nerve, muscle and/or neuromuscular junction lesions and diseases in conditions such as sciatica (lumboischialgia), whiplash injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, various polyneuropathies, muscular dystrophies, polyradiculoneuritis, myasthenia gravis, dystonia and tremor.

Other tests performed include:

  • EMNG of upper extremities, EMNG of lower extremities, EMG of facial muscles with Blink-reflex testing, Tetany-test, Frequency of tremor analysis, Sequence of activation analysis for involuntary movements
  • Visual (VEP), auditory (BAER, AEP) and somatosensory (SSEP) evoked potentials, cognitive evoked potentials (ERP, P300)

Nicolet Natus EEG 32-channel machine is used for the functional diagnostics of the central nervous system: standard electroencephalography (EEG) and electroencephalography using the activation methods (photic stimulation, hyperventilation, sleep deprivation).

All equipment belongs to the latest generation of diagnostics devices, operated by St. Catherine’s specialized professionals with more than 25 years of clinical experience.
