The neurophysiology section of the Neurology department is a state-of-the-art, dedicated section and offers various neurodiagnostic procedures. These are Electroencephalography (EEG), Nerve Conduction Study & Electromyography (NCS/EMG)’
An Electroencephalography (EEG) is usually carried out by applying electrodes to the scalp on multiple sites and recordings the normal and abnormal electrical activities of the brain. The electrodes analyze the electrical impulses in the brain and send signals to a computer that records the results. lt is usually recommended for the diagnosis and monitoring of different types of seizure disorders, and to classify different epilepsies and epileptic syndromes, persistent altered level of consciousness, or altered mental status. lt is also recommended in the diagnosis and monitoring of Encephalopathies (metabolic/toxic/hypoxic), comas especially in intensive care units, sleep disorders’ brain tumors, and acute CNS infections (Meningoencephalitis). Nerve conduction studies (NCS) and needle electromyography (EMG) are used to evaluate the conduction of electrical impulses along peripheral nerves and muscles. They can be useful in aiding in the diagnosis of peripheral nerve and muscle disorders. These include Peripheral neuropathies’ Entrapment neuropathies, Radiculopathies, Muscular disorders, and neuromuscular junction disorders. The neurophysiology section is operated by well-trained and qualified technical staff, providing state of art care and services to our patients. All the procedures and reporting of the neurophysiology section are carried out by qualified and experienced Neurophysicians. Our vision is to offer excellent services for the diagnosis and further management of various neuromuscular disorders.
