The Neurology Department at SMMC offers the following services:
24 Hour Ambulatory EEG - The ambulatory EEG records brain activity for 24 hours on a small recorder that's worn around the waist. Electrodes are applied to the scalp with a glue-like substance, and the patient is sent home with a diary to record activities and any symptoms.
Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potential - Checks the pathway from the ear to the brain. The BAEP test may help uncover the cause of hearing and balance problems, as well as other symptoms.
Visual Evoked Potential - Checks the pathway from the eyes to the brain. May help find the cause of certain visual problems and other conditions.
Somatosensory Evoked Potential - Checks the pathway from the nerves in the limbs to the brain. It's a way to study the function of the nerves, spinal cord, and brain.
Each test is interpreted by a board-certified Neurologist.
