PROCEDURES / SERVICES

Dr. Mridha may recommend the following procedures and tests for neurological treatments: EMG, EEG, EVOKES, CAROTID DOPPLER, BOTOX, NERVE BLOCKS, BLOOD TEST, MRI, CT SCAN, MYOLOGRAM, SPINAL TAP and SLEEP STUDIES. Our office is equipped to do most of these tests; however, some of these tests may need to be done outside our clinic.

EMG
Electromyography involves testing the electrical activity in the nervous system. Often, EMG testing is performed with another test that measures the conducting function of nerves. This is called a nerve conduction study. EMG may aid with the diagnosis of nerve compression or injury (such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome), nerve root injury (such as Sciatica), and with other problems of the muscles or nerves. Less common medical conditions include Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), myasthenia gravis, and muscular dystrophy. Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies MANC EMG Machine
EEG
The EEG is used in the evaluation of brain disorders. Most commonly it is used to show the type and location of the activity in the brain during a seizure. It also is used to evaluate people who are having problems associated with brain function. These problems might include confusion, coma, tumors, long-term difficulties with thinking or memory, or weakening of specific parts of the body (such as weakness associated with a stroke).

CAROTID DOPPLER
Carotid Doppler Ultrasound is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the large carotid arteries that supply blood to the brain. These arteries can narrow due to arteriosclerosis or other causes and this can lead to TIA (mini-stroke) or CVA (stroke). This test can help doctors to determine stroke risk and help determine preventive measures. Carotid Doppler
NERVE BLOCKS
Often a group of nerves, called a plexus or ganglion, that causes pain to a specific organ or body region can be blocked with local medicine. The injection (shot) of this nerve-numbing substance is called a nerve block. Nerve blocks can be used, in some cases, to avoid surgical options. Nerve blocks for pain management - TENS - WebMD
BOTOX
Botox is used to treat patients with diseases that cause muscle spasms and tremors, such as multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy; neurological conditions such as muscle spasms of the neck and shoulders (cervical dystonia), muscle spasms of the eyelid (blepharospasm), and muscle spasms of the face (hemifacial spasm); and hyperhidrosis. It has also been found effective in treating migraine headaches and leg stiffness/weakness (spasticity) in stroke patients.

EVOKES

Evoked potential studies are a group of tests of the nervous system that measure electrical signals along the nerve pathways. There are four different types of evokes:
      Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP):
      Auditory Evoked Potentials (AEP):
      Sensory Evoked Potentials (SEP):
      Motor Evoked Potentials:
