Best Neurology Hospital in Mumbai
Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with diseases and disorders of the nervous system. This complex system includes the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves connecting them. Neurological complaints, diagnosis, and treatment options have seen remarkable growth and improvements due to awareness and technological advances, which allow early discovery of conditions and subsequent cures. Top amongst these is stroke leading to paralysis, a common condition, however, if medical help is sought within 30 minutes to 1 hour at the right center, there is a high possibility of complete reversal. Brain tumors, convulsions, epilepsy, memory-related conditions, and disorders related to balance and gait (walking) are a few regular complaints. While many of these seem common ailments in the elderly, neurological afflictions can happen across age groups.

Neurology Care - Diagnosis
1. CT Scan
CT scan is an imaging procedure that uses X-rays to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This fast and painless procedure aids in diagnosing brain damage from a head injury, detecting blood clots in the brain, brain tumors and cysts, detecting spinal stenosis, and many more. The images of CT scans can give more detailed information about your internal organs and their injuries which plain X-rays can’t.
2. Carotid Ultrasound
This diagnostic technique uses high-frequency sound waves to look at the structure and function of the carotid arteries which run on either side of your neck. This test shows whether fatty deposits called plaque have clogged or narrowed the carotid arteries. Narrowed carotid arteries reduce the blood flow to the brain and increase the risk of stroke.
Discogram often spelled Diskogram, is an interventional diagnostic imaging test to evaluate the cause of back pain. It helps to determine if a specific intervertebral disc in the spinal column is the source of the pain, by injecting a contrast liquid called dye into the center of the spinal discs using x-ray guidance.
4. Electroencephalogram (EEG)
An EEG is a diagnostic procedure to detect abnormalities in the brain waves by attaching electrodes consisting of flat metal discs to the scalp. This test, in which the result is observed as wavy lines on a computer screen, is paramount in diagnosing several types of brain disorders mainly epilepsy and sleep disorders.
5. Electromyography (EMG)
Electromyography (EMG) is an electrodiagnostic medicine technique that measures how well the muscles respond when the nerves are stimulated. During this test, small needles (or electrodes) are inserted into the muscles to pick up the electrical activity in those muscles. The resulting signals are converted into graphs, sounds, or numerical values that help the doctors to diagnose the problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission, nerve dysfunction, or muscle dysfunction.
6. Lumbar Puncture (Spinal Tap)
Lumbar Puncture is performed to acquire information about the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. This test involves inserting a needle between the two lumbar bones in the lower back to withdraw a sample of the fluid. Meningitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and cancers in the spinal cord or brain are a few conditions that can be diagnosed by this test.
7. Tilt Table Test
This simple and non-invasive test is conducted to determine the cause of repeated and unexplained episodes of fainting (called syncope). As the name implies, this test involves placing the patient on a special table supported with firm straps and tilting it to different angles. During this tilting, the body’s vital signs like heart rhythm, pulse, and blood pressure are constantly monitored by the doctor to investigate the cause of fainting.
