• Neurophysiology

    We believe that in order to give our patients the high-quality care they deserve, we must provide the latest, cutting-edge, high-quality technologies.

    Advanced Diagnostic Testing

    To determine how a patient’s nervous system is functioning, Mount Sinai West’s Neurophysiology department uses the most advanced diagnostic testing, including electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SEP), Computed Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to determine neurological problems.

    Types of Neurophysiology Tests

    EEGs record the brain’s electrical impulses, and are commonly used to detect seizure disorders and problems associated with brain function, such as confusion or difficulties with memory. EEGs are also helpful in identifying the causes of such neurological problems as sleep disorders and changes in behavior.

    EMGs measure the electrical activity in muscles. If nerve function is impaired, the characteristics of the electrical impulses in muscles change, and from that, our neurologists can pinpoint nerve compressions or injuries, such as those involved in carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and muscular dystrophy.

    Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SEP) tests measure how body sensations are relayed to the brain and how the brain receives them. We use these to evaluate the health of peripheral nerves and the spinal cord.

    Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) create clear and concise muscular-skeletal images, providing valuable information about the causes and locations of a neurological problem.
