Diagnostic Testing

Diagnostic tests often help the neurologist to confirm diagnoses and may lead to a specific treatment.

After taking the history and doing the appropriate examinations, the neurologist Dr Debo Gorai will have more of an understanding of the problem or will know which other tests need to be done.

Depending on the tests ordered, they may be done by the neurologist or you may be referred to a radiologist or pathology centre. Common procedures needed for accurate diagnosis are X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, EEGs, and EMGs.
