  • 24-hour ambulatory EEG
  • EMG/nerve conduction studies (transmission of an impulse along a nerve fiber)

This neurodiagnostic lab provides service for the following conditions:

  • EEG: epilepsy, altered mental status, dementia, coma, encephalitis, traumatic brain injury, syncope/vertigo
  • EP: multiple sclerosis, optic neuritis, brainstem pathology, anoxia, coma (prognosis), blindness, vertigo
