Diagnosing and Treating Neuroimmunology

Diagnostic Expertise

Through comprehensive patient histories, physical examinations, detailed neurological examinations, and testing for autoimmune markers in blood and cerebrospinal fluid, our physicians work as a team to consider every diagnosis.

The Pediatric Neuroradiology section of our Pediatric Radiology Department offers a wide range of the latest testing technologies to provide the highest possible image clarity. These technologies include:

  • CT or CAT scan (computed tomography scans)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Diffusion tensor imaging
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA) scan
  • MR spectroscopy
  • Diffusion tensor imaging
  • PET molecular imaging
  • Myelogram
  • Ultrasound (sonogram)
  • Neurosonogram

Other tests and procedures available for patients with neuroimmunologic conditions:

  • Cerebral spinal fluid analysis (spinal tap or lumbar puncture)
  • Evoked potentials
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Electromyogram (EMG)
  • Magnetoencephalogram (MEG)
