Facilities of Asian Neuro Centre
The division of Neurophysiology is operational since the inception of Asian Neuro Centre is one of the best centres in Indore. It offers a
wide range of tests to diagnose neurological problems.The Neurophysiology Department performs a broad range of diagnostic
An EEG records the electrical activity that arises from the brain cells. Multiple external electrodes are placed on patient scalp. These
elctrodes record the electrical impulses arising from different parts or areas of your brain that are picked up by these electrodes and
transmitted to a machine called polygraph. This polygraph machine
produces separate graphs on a computer screen. This is then
interpreted by neurologist.
EEG test helps in diagnosing following disorders:
Epilepsy or other seizure disorders
Brain dysfunction (encephalopathy,encephalitis)
Stroke or CVA
Dementia and Memory imapirment
Video EEG is an EEG performed while the process is video taped. A Video is usually done for several hours and sessions may continue for a long time. It may be performed on an outpatient basis or ipd basis.A Video EEG is helpful in away that the doctor could observe an individual during a seizure. Just like the electrical signals, the individual’s activity too offers important clues to the disorder, its exact nature and severity. Together electrical signals and patients
activity helps make a precise and accurate diagnosis. A video picks up seizure activity when the patient is clinical experiencing a seizure.
These are completely painless and non invasive tests and can be done on children and adults safely.
Nerve Conduction Study-
This test helps in study of nerves. In this test sticky electrodes will be placed on parts of your limbs, these are to record the electrical
responses from your nerves and tell how well they are working.With
the help of a special probe nerves are stimulated. The ‘shocks’ given are in Milli amperes and are quite bearable. The stimulus is local and does not travel all over the body. The Motor conduction stimulus feels like a sharp tap and causes movement of the area being stimulated.
Needle EMG examination –
This test is done to detect the muscular disorder. EMG is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them. This test is done using fine Disposable Electrodes, which are thin solid pins, this pin is inserted into the muscle to study the pattern and nature of disease. No shocks are given .The Needle is inserted just into the muscle for few seconds and patient is asked to slightly contract the muscle and the neural activity is picked up by the electrode and displayed on the monitor and along with this a sound over a loud speaker is heard and diagnosis is made on-line. The number of muscles examined depends upon the working diagnosis. Motor neurons transmit electrical signals through motor nerves that cause muscles to contract. An EMG translates these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that a Neurophysiologist interprets. The referring doctor may order for the tests if you have signs or symptoms that may indicate a nerve or muscle disorder. Such symptoms are:
Tingling in hands or feet, Numbness, Muscle weakness, Muscle pain or cramps, Traumatic Injuries, Peripheral Neuropathies, Muscle diseases: Myopathies, Diseases of Nerve and Muscle junction-Myasthenia Gravis, Diseases of Motor neurons of brain and spinal cord-Motor neurone disease.
Repetitive Nerve Stimulation (Decremental Study)
Among neurological disorders there are Certain diseases where muscle weakness fall neither in the nerve section nor in muscle part but are due to pathology at the junction of nerve and muscle called the neuromuscular junction. Special tests the Repetitive Nerve
Stimulation (Decremental Study) and even more sophisticated tests like Single Fiber EMG (SFEMG) can onlr evaluate these diseases.
Before performing this test patient are advised to stop medication 24 hours prior with your referring doctor's consent. Kindly carry the medication along so that it can be taken as soon as test is completed. During RNST test a continuous current stimuli (6-7 taps) are given to a nerve to be tested.
These are specialized tests that measure responses to Visual, Auditory and
Electrical stimuli which involve three major tests
Visual evoked potentials (VEP)Brainstem auditory evoked potentials response(BAERA)
Somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP)
VEP : Visual evoked Potentials
Test the Optic pathway (Visual evoked Potentials). This test provides the most sensitive means of detecting lesions of the Optic nerves by studying the optic nerve. During this test in order to stimulate the visual system patient will be required to watch a checkerboard television screen infront of a computer . In the paediatric age group, the flash VEP may be used as a screening test for the visual pathway because children have difficulty in concentrating on checkerboard.
BAERA : Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials response.
Test the Auditory pathway ;BAER
We are recording the activity of the auditory nerve by studying the auditory pathway in response to a sound. During this test 3 wires (forehead and behind each ear) are attached and a headphone is kept on both the ears to pick up this electrical activity. It is a painless and non‐invasive test.
SSEP (Somatosensory evoked potential)
A somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) is an evoked potential caused by an electrical stimulus. This investigation therefore tests the pathway of the sensory nerves to the sensory areas of the brain. A doctor may recommend you go for a SSEP test if you have been experiencing feelings of numbness or weakness in your arms or legs that may be due to problems affecting the spinal cord functioning. The SSEP procedure itself is safe and non-invasive. A small generator is used to create tiny electrical impulses that are used tostimulate nerves in the wrist or the ankle. While the impulses are usually not painful, they may cause your thumb or toe to twitch a little, which is normal.
