The electroneuodiagnostics laboratory offers diagnostic studies to help aid in the determination of many neurological disorders. At Kaweah Delta we offer:
- inpatient and outpatient EEGs
- ambulatory EEG/long term monitoring
- intraoperative monitoring during spine, cardiac and neuro surgeries
The EEG, also known as an electroencephalogram, helps to diagnose neurological conditions by detecting the small electrical impulses given off by the brain. This simple and painless test can be completed in our lab or at home with a home monitor. This can help determine if someone is having seizures or other various conditions that may have resulted from a head injury, stroke or other traumas.
The EP or otherwise known as an evoked potential helps to determine the synchronicity of the nerves throughout the body. It can aid in determining auditory, visual or sensory disturbances. Conditions known as vertigo, carpal tunnel syndrome and multiple sclerosis as well as many others can be diagnosed with this testing.
Intraoperative monitoring is used in the operating room to assist the surgeon in making sure the neurological functions stay intact. Electrodes are placed on the body to ensure sensory and motor function is maintained throughout the body.
Our chief technologist is board certified and registered in EEG with more than 11 years experience and is one of the few within the San Joaquin/Sacramento Valley with this credential. Our technicians are highly trained and use the newest digital innovations in the field of neurodiagnostics.
