Neurodiagnostics Center, Sandhills Neurologists

The Sandhills Neurodiagnostic Center offers the following services:

Electroencephalograms (EEG)

Performed in our office, a series of wires are attached to your scalp by a neurodiagnostic technologist. You will then be asked to perform a series of small tasks to elicit brain activity.

Long Term Video Monitoring

LTVM is performed in our offices and you will have a private bedroom. You will have small electrodes placed on your scalp for recording your brain waves. Your scalp will be wrapped with gauze and you will be connected to a video EEG machine. Typically, Long Term Video Monitoring will last 3 days.

Memory Testing

We use a computer based program called CNS Vital Signs, designed to test your memory, reactions and overall concentration.

Balance Plate Testing

In less than 60 second, this simple diagnostic device allows us to identify if you are at increased risk of falling.

Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) & Electromyograms (EMG)

Performed in-house, this test aims to check the function of nerves and muscles and identify issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy, cervical radiculopathy and sciatica.

VNG (Videonystagmography) Testing

This test is used to determine if an inner ear (vestibular) condition may be causing a balance or dizziness problem.
