Neurological Treatment

Neurology in Dubai

Please find here a range of Diagnostic Methods and available Therapies in our multi-speciality Clinic for Neurosurgery, Neurology, Psychiatry, Psychology, Psychotherapy & Counseling in Dubai, UAE:

 

EEG (Electroencephalography)

The EEG is a diagnostic method designed for the measuring of brain activity. Variations of voltage are deduced from the brain thus allowing inferences to the neurotransmission of the brain. The measurements are taken off of the surface of the patient’s head by way of electrode pads. The obtained waves are reproduced in a diagram. 
The EEG is needed for example to diagnose epilepsy (seizure disorder), encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), tumours of the brain, but also in case of headaches of all kinds, such as migraine, or unexplained vision disorders, imbalance etc.

ECD (Extracranial Doppler)

Ultrasound-exploration of the blood vessels leading to the brain.

TCD (transcranial Doppler)

Ultrasound-exploration of the blood vessels inside the brain, carried out in order to determine arteriosclerotic plaques or constrictions thus making it possible to check on the blood supply of the brain and prevent bursting of the plaques by medical or surgical intervention to avoid stroke or other blood vessel based deterioration.

DUPLEX-Sonography

Imaging ultrasound-exploration of the blood vessels and the blood flow.
IMT (INTIMA MEDIA THICKNESS) means the Duplex sonographical picturing of the thickness of the arterial vascular wall, especially the inner layer (Intima), and rating the thickness of the intima media (INTIMA MEDIA THICKNESS).
IMT allows a very early determination of a generalized arteriosclerosis which may lead to ischaemic attacks or even stroke or heart infarction. This method is able to supply important information for the early diagnosis of an increased risk of stroke or heart failure.

EMG (Electromyography)

Examination and measurement of muscle activity. Thus it is possible to diagnose muscle weaknesses the origin of which may be the muscle itself or the nerve tracts which activate the muscle.

NCV (Nerve conduction velocity)

Measurement of the velocity by which nerve tracts conduct an electric pulse. In the case of nerve damages of various kinds, the velocity may be slowed down accordingly or the height of the electric potential amplitude is changed. 
For example: polyneuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, plexus and radix neuropathia and others.

SSEP (somato-sensitive-evoked potentials)

Measurement of the sensitive nerve tracts of the limbs via the spinal cord to the brain. 
For example: spinal tumours and tumours of the brain, inflammatory processes, lack of vitamin B12.

Somatosensory evoked potential of the lateral cutaneal femoral nerve. Abnormally delayed cortical response after stimulation at the right site due to nerve lesion.

AEP (acoustically-evoked potentials)

Measurement of the acoustic and the equilibrium tracts within the brainstem. 
For example: vertigo, defective hearing, unsteadiness of gait.

VEP (visually-evoked potentials)

Measurement of the optic nerve up to the visual cortex of the brain. 
For example: vision disorders, vertigo, multiple sclerosis, other disturbances.

MEP (magnetic-evoked potentials)

Measurement of the kinetic nerve tracts from the brain via the spinal cord to the muscles.

ENG (Electronystagmography)

Measurement of the equilibrium system.
For example: vertigo, unsteadiness of gait and other disturbances of the equilibrium

SSR (sympathic skin response)SSR

Measurement of disorders of the autonomous (vegetative) nerve tracts leading from the brain to all four limbs.

Neuro-psychological Testing

for instance for the clarification of Alzheimer’s disease 
differentiation to other forms of dementia, e.g. vascular dementia
· organic brain syndrome
· disorders of brain activity
· depression
· neuroses 
· anxiety disorders 
· personality disorders
· sleeping disorders
By using neuropsychological test procedures, we can detect cognitive deficiencies in patients with the most differing illnesses.

Thus important hints can be gained regarding diagnostic methods, therapies and the assumable process.
Besides the general intellectual capacity, we are able to test the working (functional) memory, the learning ability, memory retrieval, executive functions and psychomotor realization.

Laboratory diagnostics

In cooperation with Laboratories, we analyze samples of blood or serum respectively, urine, faeces (stool), saliva, hair.

Dementia screening

This examination is used for the early detection of dementia processes when non-specific memory disorders occur, or unusual obliviousness or if there is a family history of dementia. 
“Am I only forgetting things or do I already suffer from Alzheimer’s disease?” “Some members of my family are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. How likely is it that I will also get this disease?”
Questions such as these are often asked and can be discussed when carrying out the dementia screening. At best baseless fears will be remedied, at worst early steps can be taken (e.g. training the cognitive functions of the brain) or medical intervention to avoid or to allay any vascular dementia processes. Even with Alzheimer’s disease there is a range of possibilities to slow down the process.

Stroke Risk analysis (cardiovascular risk analysis)

we offer the creation of an individual medical risk assessment as a precautionary measure regarding cardiovascular disease and/or apoplexy including laboratory results and therapeutic consequences.
