Diagnosing and Monitoring Neurological Disorders
Neurodiagnostic tests provide critical information about the health of the nervous system. Physicians use three general types of tests to diagnose and monitor neurological problems. Radiology tests generate a picture of an internal part of the body or information about the biochemistry of the body. Neurophysiology tests detect electrical impulses to determine if the body's nervous system is functioning appropriately. Finally, sleep studies are often used to assess neurological conditions.
