Diagnosis & Testing
Aside from X-rays, MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging), and angiograms, today’s
technology includes diagnostic procedures that allow physicians to actually
see inside the living brain and monitor nervous system activity as it
occurs. This gives them powerful and accurate tools to confirm certain
diagnoses, rule out others, and determine how well a particular treatment
or therapy will work.
Other diagnostic tests offered at Baton Rouge General include biopsies,
brain scans, ultrasound, CT scan,
polysomnogram, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, and genetic testing.
