Mee Memorial Hospital offers diagnostic and treatment technologies for patients with a wide range of medical conditions including stroke, multiple sclerosis, neuro-muscular disorders (such as muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, peripheral neuropathy), Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, sleep disorders and headaches. In addition, we provide treatment options for patients with aneurysms, abnormal growths, hemorrhages and nerve damage.
Diagnostic technologies available to neurology patients include:
An EEG is a non-invasive procedure that records the electrical signals of the brain (brainwaves). By looking at a representation of brainwave activity, neurologists can identify and locate irregular electrical activity in the brain.
Computerized Tomography Scan (CT Scan)
CT scanning produces a computerized x-ray image of blood vessels, arteries and organs. The procedure enables physicians to assess the condition of the brain and its blood supply.
Cerebral angiography is an x-ray procedure that provides detailed images of the blood vessels of the brain itself, as well as of the arteries that supply blood to the brain. It is often used to locate an aneurysm or to assist in the diagnosis of stroke.
Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a moving picture of blood flow in the arteries of the head and neck. The non-invasive procedure enables neurologists to locate and evaluate arteries that are narrowed or blocked.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
A MRI produces very detailed images of brain tissue non-invasively and without the use of x-rays. The MRI procedure is often used to help neurologists diagnose Alzheimer’s disease, aneurysm, damage to the spinal column and other conditions.
