Neurodiagnostics Center at Mary Washington Hospital
1001 Sam Perry Boulevard, Suite 411
Fredericksburg, VA 22401
The Neurodiagnostics Center at Mary Washington Hospital provides the latest
technology for diagnosing neurological disorders, including epilepsy,
pain related to spinal nerves and compression neuropathies such as neuromuscular
diseases. It offers the Fredericksburg region the most advanced diagnostic
procedures and equipment for patient evaluations.
Neurodiagnostic testing you can trust
With skilled neurologists on staff, the Neurodiagnostics Center offers
a full range of services designed to assist area physicians in diagnosing
and treating a variety of conditions of the central nervous system (i.e.
brain and spinal cord). This includes treatment for sleep disorders, carpal
tunnel syndrome, epilepsy, stroke and other neurological conditions.
There are two general types of neurodiagnostic tools used at Mary Washington
Hospital. One is medical imaging or scans. The other is electro neurodiagnostic
testing, which examines the central and peripheral nervous system to determine
if the system is functioning correctly.
Advanced neurodiagnostic testing and evaluation
Combining state-of-the-art digital technology with a seasoned staff, the
Neurodiagnostics Center offers a wide range of neurodiagnostic and electroneurodiagnostic
testing services. This includes:
The Sleep Center, which utilizes polysomnography to diagnose and determine the severity
of sleep apnea and a host of other sleep disorders.
Epilepsy monitoring. Epilepsy patients are observed through the use of an EEG with simultaneous
video monitoring. This is done to document seizure activity over an extended
period of time.
Nerve conduction velocity studies, commonly used to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome.
Electromyography (EMG), a clinical test used to study the electrical activity of muscles and
investigate possible muscle pathology.
Visual evoked potential, used in the diagnosis of optic neuritis, multiple sclerosis and lesions
of the optic pathway.
Brainstem auditory evoked potentials, used evaluate the auditory pathway to determine hearing loss.
Somatosensory evoked potentials, helpful in diagnosing multiple sclerosis, radiculapathies and thoracic
