Clinical neurophysiology is a clinical speciality at Diatra characterised by supplemental diagnostic exams designed to assess the responses of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
The methods used in clinical neurophysiology are designed to identify the types and areas of the injury, as well as the precise location of the injury. In order to reliably identify these elements, several tests must be performed, in addition to those conducted in a laboratory. The activity of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system needs to be investigated thoroughly. To do this, the electrical functions of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and neuromuscular junction must be measured.
Clinical neurophysiology is an area of medical science that is not yet well known by the general public, but it is present in some of the most common diagnostic methods for recording spontaneous or evoked bioelectrical activity. The electroencephalogram, the sleep study (orpolysomnography) and electromyography are the primary exams performed at Diatra for the analysis and investigation of diseases.
