Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with the nervous system and diseases.
With which complaints should neurology be consulted;
Visual disturbances (double vision, blurred vision, vision loss)
- Weakness, numbness, tingling, tremors in arms and legs.
Loss of consciousness, fainting
- Involuntary movements, gait disturbances, loss of balance.
Which Diseases Is Neurology Dealing With;
1- Cerebrovascular Diseases (Strokes)
2- Muscular and Neuromuscular junction diseases (M. Gravis, Myopathies)
3- Movement Disorders (Parkinson's Disease, Harytryten Chorea.)
6- Dementia (diseases with Alzheimer's and Dementia)
7- Neuro-Oncology (Brain Tumors)
8- Myelin Diseases of the Central Nervous System (Multiple Sclerosis)
9- Peripheral Nerve Diseases (Polynoropathy, Carpal Tunnel)
10- Autonomic Nervous System Syndrome and Diseases
EEG (Electroencephalography): Fluctuations in the Spontaneous Electrical activity of a large group of neurons are recorded from the surface. This method reflects the functional state of the brain rather than its structural features.
EEG is the most important examination method in the diagnosis of epilepsy and follow-up of epileptic patients, following clinical findings.
Recording the EEG;
EEG is a completely painless and harmless examination method.
A routine EEG recording takes about 30 minutes. Takes.
Before the shooting, the patient needs to have a clean hair and a full stomach.
EMG (Electromyography): It is an examination in which the nerves and muscles in our body are examined by electrical methods. It consists of nerve conduction study and needle EMG.
In nerve conduction studies, the nerve conduction velocity and nerve amplitude are measured by applying low voltage electrical current to the examined nerves.
Needle EMG is an examination method based on recording from the muscles through a needle electrode.
- Nerve Injuries
- Diagnosing diseases that impair the functions of the nerves (such as diabetes, kidney disease)
- Diagnosis of Muscle Diseases
- It is used for the diagnosis of spinal cord diseases with muscle wasting.
Coming to Review:
- Patients on a full stomach
- It would be appropriate for them to come with comfortable clothing.
- Patients with pacemakers are recommended to warn the physician.
There is no harm in taking the medicines that he regularly uses. However, some medications should not be used in special cases. In these cases, the necessary warnings are made in advance by the physician.
Shooting time varies according to the disease. It can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours, even if not in a Stena. Since the cooperation of the patient is important during the shooting, it is important that the patient helps the doctor and adapts in order not to prolong the shooting time.
