Electroencephalography (EEG) is the standard of care and a proven method for measuring brain function for neurological diagnostics and also for neurological research applications. EEG is one of the standard methods used in neurology/ neurophysiology departments. inomed neurodiagnostic products are used for the complete range of neurodiagnostic tests and applications. The tests include loss of the fine nerve branches in the hands and feet, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, Parkinson's disease and some mental disorders. Neurography, Electromyography (EMG) and EEG are used to test cortical potentials (EEG), nerve conduction velocity, nerve conduction block or voluntary muscular activity (EMG).
When used alongside EEG and EP systems, Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has proven to be a useful tool for neurological diagnostics. This means that EEG testing and the stimulation delivered using TMS is completely pain free for the patient. TMS provides the practitioner with a non-invasive method of stimulating the cortex, peripheral nerves and the conduction of motor-evoked potentials (MEP). TMS is an established routine examination method in neurological diagnostics. The focus is on assessment of the Motor Evoked Potentials (MEP) and the determination of central motor conduction time to examine the functional integrity of the corticospinal tract.
Regardless of which of the inomed systems you choose – whether it is the Walter EEG system (also called video EEG, VEEG), Neurowerk EEG, Neurowerk EMG/EP or one of the Magstim stimulations systems, inomed neurophysiological diagnostics systems deliver a comprehensive range of tests including NCV, EMG, SEP and AEP.
