Tests We Offer
M R I
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive test that uses radio frequency waves and strong magnets to show images of the body on a computer system. There is no radiation exposure with MRI.
M R A
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) provides a detailed look at the blood vessels. MRAs are used to diagnose stroke and blood vessel diseases. The MRA test procedure is the same as for an MRI.
DriveABLE Cognitive Assessment Tool (DCAT)
The DriveABLE Cognitive Assessment is an assessment of the thinking abilities, as they relate to driving, for drivers with medical conditions.
DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation (DORE) by Taggart’s Driving School
The DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation (DORE) is a scientifically developed on-road evaluation that tests specifically for the decline in the cognitive skills needed for safe driving. Unlike other on-road tests, the DORE tests for cognitive impairment and not bad-habit errors which are common among experienced drivers.
BrainCare Cognitive Testing
BrainCare is an advanced, computerized cognitive testing system that is a practical way to evaluate a patient’s cognitive health.
About 9% of the US population (30 million people) may harbor an autonomic disorder requiring medical attention (source: American Academy of Neurology).
Sleep is an integral component of our overall health and well being. There are several disorders that can interfere with sleep—including obstructive sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia.
Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botulinum toxin is a powerful neuromuscular blocking agent, used to treat different focal spastic diseases and excessive muscle contractions such as dystonias, spasms and twitches. Potential benefits include pain relief, improved posture, and increased range of motion.
E E G
An EEG (Electroencephalogram) measures the brain’s electrical activity through electrodes placed on the scalp, and is useful in diagnosing various medical conditions.
E M G / N C V
Physicians often request EMG/NCV (Electromyography / Nerve Conduction) tests to determine why you may be experiencing numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, spasms, or muscle cramping.
