Advanced Testing and Diagnostics


X-Rays

X-rays allow your physician to see your body tissues. The calcium in your bones blocks the x-ray beam from passing through, which creates a shadow that is shown on the film, which is on the opposite side of the beam.

Nerve Conduction Velocity Studies (NCS)

Nerve conduction velocity studies are often done along with a electromyography (EMG) study, which measures your nerve electrical activity. The study is used to determine the presence of nerve damage.

Electromyography (EMG)

Electromyography (EMG) is often done along with a nerve conduction velocity (NCS) study, which measures your muscle electrical activity. The study is used to determine the presence of nerve damage or other muscle conditions. An EMG can detect peripheral nerve damage and can tell if a muscle is truly weak or if you just aren't using it because of pain.

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Diagnostic ultrasound is a medical imaging technique used to visulaized the spine, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It allows the doctor to see any lesions with real time tomographic images.

MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that gives a detailed view of the soft tissues of your spine or brain. Using a magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer, which allows your doctor to view your spine or brain in slices, creates images. The images can be taken from the side, from the front, or from the bottom as cross-sections.

Myelography (Myelogram)

A myelogram is a specialized x-ray in which a contrast agent is injected into your spinal canal. A fluoroscope then records the images formed by the dye. Myelograms are helpful in showing pinched nerves caused by herniated discs. The dye used in myelograms appear in white on the images allowing the physician to view the spinal cord, exiting nerves and canal in detail.

CT Scan

A Computed Topography (CT) scan, uses x-rays and a computer to create cross-section images of your spine or brain. It produces images of your spine and brain in slices, layer by layer. It may be performed with or without a contrast dye injection.

Discography

Discography is a diagnostic procedure to view and assess the internal structure of a disc and determine if it is a source of pain. The procedure is designed to create a road map to show the physician where pain patterns are originating, making the discogram an excellent surgical planning tool. A discogram is selected for patients who have not responded to conservative treatments.
