Nervous system and brain imaging
Our minimally invasive imaging technologies result in better outcomes for our patients, including more tumor cells removed in a single procedure, less time in the hospital and a quicker return to daily life. We offer detailed imaging technology, which leads to more accurate diagnoses and targeted treatment.
Digital biplane angiography
We offer Southwest Virginia's only digital biplane angiography unit, also known as 3DRA (three-dimensional rotational angiography). This noninvasive, rapid-scanning process quickly captures highly detailed images inside the body, especially the brain, spine and delicate systems such as blood vessels.
Using the 3DRA system, several images are taken, often during surgical procedures, using a C-shaped device that rotates around the patient. Images are reconstructed in a 3D sequence, creating life-like projections of body tissues and processes.
An EEG is a painless, 90-minute procedure that uses sensors to evaluate electrical brain activity, also referred to as brain waves. An EEG helps doctors diagnose a variety of neurological disorders from a common headache and dizziness to stroke and head trauma. It is also used to determine organic causes of psychiatric symptoms and disabilities in children.
Neurological treatment we offer
Our neurologists work with you to offer the most personalized care for your condition. Some of the treatments we offer include:
- Multiple sclerosis (MS) treatments
