The neurology centre at Paideia International Hospital is concerned with the study, treatment and care of disorders of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and peripheral nervous system (consisting of all other nerve elements, including structures in the eyes, ears and skin).
The main conditions treated by the neurology centre
The specialist medical team provides in-patient and out-patient care for neurological patients with:
Neurology: diagnostic tests
Electroencephalograms (EEGs) record the brain’s bio-electrical activity. The EEG, which has no contraindications, can easily be repeated as often as necessary. Performed by experts using modern digital equipment, it provides the medical specialist with valuable information that cannot be obtained by other methods.
Performing an EEG is crucial in the following diagnoses:
Electromyography and Electroneurography
Electroneurography (ENG) assesses the functionality of peripheral nerves by measuring sensitive nerve conduction velocity (VCS) and motor nerve conduction velocity (VCM). The ENG examination provides fundamental information in all forms of polyneuropathy and in compressive neuropathies (carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar nerve compression in the elbow, and peroneal nerve injuries in the knee). The examination consists of non-invasive stimulation of peripheral nerve fibres and recording of nerve responses using surface electrodes.
The electromyographic (EMG) examination records muscle bio-electrical activity, helping to assess the health of muscle fibres and their motor innervation. EMG is important in diagnosing cervical and lumbosacral radiculopathies secondary to intervertebral disc herniation and canal stenosis, providing irreplaceable elements to guide the choice of treatment. The examination involves the use of a small electrode needle that is inserted into the muscles under examination.
