  • CT Scan

    CT scan (or computed tomography scan) is an imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images (often called slices) of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including bone, muscle and organs.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of large magnets, radiofrequencies and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body.
  • A nerve conduction (NC) and electromyography (EMG) test evaluates the health of your nerves and muscles. This test can help determine whether symptoms such as numbness, weakness or pain are due to a disease that affects the function of your nerves and/or your muscles.
