Neurology is the practice of medicine that focuses on the health of your brain, spinal cord, and nerves, collectively referred to as the nervous system. As your body's communication and processing center, the nervous system is very important to your health and who you are. It lets you think, feel, control your body, and communicate. Problems with your nervous system may cause trouble moving, talking, feeling, reading, thinking, and doing things you normally do.
The following diagnostic tests are offered through Scotland Memorial Hospital's Neurology Department:
Electroencephalography (EEG) - an examination of spontaneous brain activity to diagnose disease processes
Peripheral nerve conduction velocities and EMGs
Evoked potentials - both auditory and visual studies
Pediatric EEGs for ages 10 and younger are sent to Chapel Hill to be interpreted by a pediatric neurologist.
Diagnostic testing is provided both in the hospital and at our outpatient center located at 705-A Lauchwood Dr., Prestwick Park, Laurinburg.
