Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Craniotomy
    Craniotomy involves removing a bone flap, a section of the skull, to access the brain.

  • Electroencephalogram
    The procedure is performed by a specially trained EEG technologist to measure brain activity, and neurologists utilize the results to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of a possible neurological disorder.

  • Ketogenic Diet Therapy
    If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy, our physicians may utilize a ketogenic diet therapy to help control the number of seizures you experience, when traditional medical or surgical procedures prove unsuccessful.

  • MRI
    Radiologists and oncologists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of your body to help detect many conditions.

  • Neuropsychological Tests
    These tests can acquire information about a patient's cognitive, motor, behavioral, linguistic and executive functioning and lead to the diagnosis of a cognitive deficit.

  • PET & PET CT
    Positron emission tomography (PET) is an imaging study that is most commonly performed for the oncology patient for the diagnosis, staging and restaging of tumors, and for monitoring therapy.

  • Vagus Nerve Stimulation
    If you have epilepsy and are still experiencing repeated seizures despite medication, you may be a candidate for vagus nerve stimulation.
