Neurology is the medical speciality that deals with nervous system disorders and also with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases.
The term “neurological disease” encompasses all the diseases or conditions that affect the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord), as well as the peripheral nervous system (muscles and nerves). Besides neurophysiological tests, this speciality includes the following diagnostic tests in the office:
Transcranial Doppler – Echo-Doppler of the Supraaortic Trunks
The objective of this procedure is to obtain real-time images of the arteries inside and outside the brain, and it helps to detect and appraise the existence of possible lesions. It is a non-invasive, accessible and safe ultrasound technique that can be performed easily in the office and requires no patient preparation.
