Neurology in Germany - diagnostics at Deutsche Klinik Allianz

About the program

According to the World Health Organization, every sixth inhabitant of the planet suffers from neurological diseases. Older people are more susceptible to this type of disease. Recently, however, such disorders have rapidly rejuvenated and are now increasingly noted among middle-aged people and even among young people. First of all, this is due to the high pace of life and prolonged neuropsychic stress.

But diseases of the nervous system are very insidious. It can be quite difficult to distinguish between a trivial headache, dizziness, insomnia, and rapid fatigue from important symptoms that indicate serious neurological diseases, neglect of which can lead to very serious complications, and in some cases even death.

Modern diagnostics of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, neuromuscular apparatus and autonomic nervous system makes it possible to localize inflammatory and other processes with high accuracy, identify pathology, establish its nature and, therefore, prescribe the correct treatment in a timely manner. The information obtained can be truly invaluable, greatly increasing the chances of timely and successful treatment of the disease.

Program "Neurology"

Introductory conversation with the head of the neurology clinic (history taking, final approval of the examination program and differential diagnosis)
Neurological status

What is this?
This is the result of an examination of the patient by a neurologist.

For what
To assess the state of the cranial nerves, reflexes and sensitivity of various types, coordination of movements, gait.

Psychiatric status

What is this?
The result of a clinical psychiatric examination of the patient.

For what?
To assess the patient's state of consciousness, orientation in space and time, emotional state (mood lability, the presence and severity of depression in the patient), as well as to identify cognitive and mental disorders.

Ultrasound Dopplerography (USDG) of extracranial
neck vessels

What is this?

Это диагностический метод, который использует ультразвуковые волны для измерения скорости кровотока в сосудах (допплерография) и для визуализации структуры стенок кровеносных сосудов, проходящих через области шеи вне полости черепа.

For what?

Это обследование используется для оценки состояния сонных артерий (каротидных артерий) и вертебральных артерий и позволяет выявить стенозы (сужения) сосудов, тромбозы (сгустки крови), атеросклероз и другие виды патологии, а также может быть полезен для выявления риска инсульта и других сердечно-сосудистых заболеваний.

Ультразвуковая допплерография (УЗДГ) интракраниальных сосудов шеи

What is this?

Это диагностический метод, который использует ультразвуковые волны для измерения скорости кровотока в сосудах (допплерография) и для визуализации структуры стенок кровеносных сосудов, проходящих внутри полости черепа.

For what?

Этот метод позволяет оценить кровоток внутри головного мозга и диагностировать такие виды патологии, как наличие аневризм, атеросклеротических бляшек, стенозов и других сосудистых аномалий.

Study of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)
Electroencephalography (EEG)

What is this?

Этот метод диагностики позволяет регистрировать электрические потенциалы, генерируемые мозгом, и создавать электроэнцефалограмму (ЭЭГ), которая представляет собой графическое изображение этих электрических сигналов.

For what?

ЭЭГ является важным инструментом для исследования активности мозга и может быть использован для диагностики и мониторинга различных нейрологических состояний, таких как эпилепсия, судороги, головные боли, неврологические расстройства и другие.

Final conversation with the head of the neurology clinic based on the results of examinations, if necessary, the appointment of treatment

Neurology Plus program

The program contains all examinations of the basic package "Neurology". In addition, additionally carried out:

Visual evoked potentials

What is this?
A research method that consists in recording the responses of the visual cortex to stimulation.

For what?
In order to diagnose lesions of the optic nerve (retrobulbar neuritis, ischemic neuropathy), optic tract, diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, degenerative eye diseases.

auditory evoked potentials

What is this?
During this testing, the conduction of impulses along the peripheral and central parts of the auditory analyzer is recorded.

For what?
For the diagnosis of central and peripheral lesions of the acoustic system, cerebellopontine angle, acoustic neuroma, it allows to differentiate conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.

Somatosensory evoked potentials

What is this?
Registration of responses of the spinal cord and brain to electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves.

For what?
To detect demyelinating, degenerative and vascular lesions of the central nervous system, plexopathies and radiculopathies, diabetic polyneuropathy.

Nerve conduction study

What is this?
A method of stimulating motor and sensory nerves with surface electrodes placed on the skin above the nerve under study in order to obtain data on the latent period and the speed of impulse conduction along nerve cells.

For what?
Allows you to determine the state of peripheral nerves, evaluate the functioning and structural integrity of the motor neuron, nerve, neuromuscular junction and muscles.

Study of memory functions

What is this?
System of methods of neuropsychological testing.

For what?
To assess the condition and identify memory defects caused by traumatic brain injuries, strokes and other diseases.
