What are some common Neurological conditions?
The neurological system of the body comprises of the brain, spinal cord, and the nervous system (central and peripheral). These components work in unison and ensure the proper functioning of different systems in the body. Some diseases or disorders may disrupt the healthy functioning of these components which can, in some cases, turn into chronic conditions. There exist hundreds of neurological disorders. Some common neurological disorders include-

  • Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy
  • Injuries or trauma to the brain or spinal cord
  • Conditions affecting the blood vessels that supply the brain such as stroke
  • Degenerative conditions of the brain such as such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, dementia
  • Infections, such as meningitis
  • Cancer, such as brain tumours and tumours of the spinal cord
How are neurological conditions diagnosed?
Diagnostic tests and procedures are critical to a detecting the diseases and getting a thorough detail of the condition. Diagnostics help doctors to confirm the presence of a particular disorder or to rule out the possibility of a condition. It also helps them to figure out any complications that might be present. At Apollo Spectra, Kanpur, the neuro-physicians use a number of diagnostic techniques to detect,  a wide range of neurological conditions. They perform these tests to detect abnormalities in the brain, monitor the functioning of the brain and actions of the nervous system and to see how a given therapy is working. Some common diagnostic tests performed to detect neurological conditions, include-

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)- It is a diagnostic test in which a combination of large magnets, radio frequencies, and a computer are used to get detailed images of organs and structures within the brain, spinal cord, and surrounding organs.
  • Computed tomography scan (CT scan)- It is a diagnostic procedure which uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to present detailed images of the brain, spinal cord, muscles fats and other parts of the body.
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG).- It is a diagnostic procedure in which the brains continuous electrical activity is recorded through electrodes attached to the scalp.
  • Spinal tap (also called a lumbar puncture)- In this procedure, a needle is placed into the lower back in which the pressure in the spinal canal and brain can be measured. Then a small amount of fluid known as Cerebral spinal fluid or CSF is extracted and sent for testing to check for infections.
  • Evoked potentials- These procedures are used to record the brain’s electrical response to visual, auditory, and sensory stimuli.
  • Arteriogram – It is An X-ray of the arteries and veins to look for blockage or narrowing of the vessels.
  • Myelogram, A procedure in which a dye is injected into the spinal canal to make it clearly visible on X-rays.
  • Positron emission tomography (PET). It is a  procedure that measures the metabolic activity of cells.
