Testing

ANSAR

Overview:

Painless, non-invasive diagnostic procedure that determines how well your autonomic nervous system is functioning.

Uses:

Autonomic dysfunction underlying syncope, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, POTS and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER)

Overview:

Neurologic test of auditory brainstem function in response to auditory (click) stimuli

Uses:

Hearing loss related to 8th nerve pathology, acoustic neuroma, multiple sclerosis

Nerve Conduction and Electromyography

Overview:

A nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test that uses electrical stimuli to assess nerve or nerve root damage and dysfunction. Electromyography (EMG) which is frequently performed in conjunction with the NCV helps determine if the firing of motor units appears normal or if it suggests neuropathic or muscular disease.

Uses:

Nerve disorders such as neuropathy, nerve root conditions such as sciatica, neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis and muscular conditions such as polymyositis.

Electroencephalogram

Overview:

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you're asleep.

Uses:

An EEG is one of the main diagnostic tests for epilepsy. An EEG may also play a role in
diagnosing other brain disorders such as encephalopathy, head injury, encephalitis, brain tumor, etc.

Sudo Scans

Overview:

Measures small nerve damage in your hands and feet that can happen early in prediabetes and diabetes. Sudo scan can serve as a baseline and can be used to monitor nerve disease as well as response to treatment.

Overview:

Diabetes, hypothyroidism, nutritional deficiencies, alcoholism, chemotherapy related.
