Neurodiagnostics Week celebrated April 15-21

Apr. 13, 2012, 2:00 PM

Neurodiagnostics, the study of the brain and nervous system, will be celebrated at Vanderbilt and nationwide, April 15-21.

During National Neurodiagnostic Week, Vanderbilt will acknowledge the year-round efforts of neurodiagnostic technologists. It is also an opportunity to educate others, recruit new students into the profession, and to promote neurodiagnostic awareness in the community.

The neurodiagnostics team at Vanderbilt is a group of exceptionally skilled and valued staff members who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to aid in diagnosis of neurological conditions.

Procedures performed include electroencephalography, evoked potentials, intraoperative neuromonitoring, long-term monitoring, nerve conduction studies and polysomnography or sleep studies. These technologists play an important role in performing these various tests to aid in diagnosing such illnesses and problems as epilepsy, sleep apnea, migraine headaches, strokes, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Neurodiagnostic Week is sponsored by the ASET – The Neurodiagnostic Society and is celebrated annually during the third week of April.
