Neurology, which means “Neuron Science”; is the medical science responsible for diagnosing, investigating and treating diseases and disorders in the central nervous system. Neurology deals with;
Neurological diseases affect the general health status of patients and reduce their quality of life, make them helpless. Technological examination methods are used to detect neurological diseases. Diseases can be diagnosed and followed by technologies such as Computerized Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Carotis-Vertebral Artery Doppler, EEG, EMG.
EXAMINATIONS IN THE NEUROLOGY DEPARTMENT
Determination of electrical maturation in brain; is a visualization technique in order to use for diagnose of brain inflammatory diseases, sleep disorders, some psychiatric disorders, epilepsy and perceptual disorders. During EEG techniques, the electric waves in the brain are recorded when the patient is asleep or awake, and by this way the anomalies are detected.
EMG is a diagnostic method that makes possible to print electrical signals in the nerves and muscles and is used to diagnose diseases that affect peripheral nerve cells, motor nerve cells, muscle fibers and disrupt nerve-muscle communication. Also, EMG is used to diagnose problems of patients suffering from nerve compression, nerve injuries, myolysis, spinal cord diseases.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Beyin, omurilik, kas, iskelet ve boyun bölgesinde meydana gelen hastalıkları teşhis etmek için sıklıkla kullanılan manyetik rezonans görüntüleme (MRG) tekniği, hastaların sağlık durumu hakkında ayrıntılı bilgi verir.
Computerized Tomography provides a clear view of internal organs. The brain can also be examined in Computerized Tomography. Moreover the technology that makes it possible to diagnose spinal diseases, accelerates the diagnostic process of doctors in the Neurology Department.
