Your brain is the command and control center for your mind and body. It’s responsible for producing every movement, emotion, or thought. Until the past few decades, the brain has been a mystery to researchers.
Advances in brain scans and brain mapping are helping diagnose brain-based illnesses at an earlier stage so treatment can begin sooner rather than later. Researchers hope brain mapping becomes a routine health screening so more people can be helped in the early stages of brain disease.
Researchers estimate that 40% of people diagnosed with dementia now could have been treated earlier if more powerful diagnostic tools had been available.
Your doctor may refer you for an eVox® brain map evaluation if you’re displaying symptoms for which they need more information before making a diagnosis and forming a treatment plan. Our board-certified radiologists at REDI Diagnostics Corp in Elmwood Park, New Jersey, provide prompt reports to your doctor so that you can start treatment as soon as possible.
Symptoms that may lead to an eVox brain map evaluation
Have you noticed that you’re forgetting important appointments? Perhaps when you’re driving, you can’t recall how to get to a place you normally go often. These kinds of symptoms are unsetting, and you want answers.
Your doctor may refer you or your loved one for an eVox brain map evaluation because of symptoms such as the following that can signal a brain-based illness:
- Unable to concentrate on a task as well as you used to
- Lapses in memory
- Unable to follow conversation
- Unable to think of words when talking
- Confusion about place and time
- Missing events or appointments
- Trouble getting to places you normally go
- Unstable walking gait
- Unexplained clumsiness
- Numbness or tingling
- Tremors in your hand, fingers, or foot
- Irritability/mood swings
- Difficulty sleeping
What illnesses can the eVox brain map help diagnose?
The eVox brain map can provide more information for your doctor about brain-based illnesses such as mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s disease. Early diagnosis can help provide treatment that may slow the progression of your condition.
What happens during an eVox brain map evaluation?
There’s no need to feel nervous or fearful about having an eVox brain map study. It’s a noninvasive procedure, and it’s not painful. The eVox brain map is a QEEG, or quantitative electroencephalogram, which is a special form of an EEG.
Doctors have used EEGs for years to help identify abnormal electrical activity that signals a stroke or a traumatic brain injury. The QEEG adds a quantitative element that produces more information about your brainwaves.
Our caring staff places a cap containing the QEEG device on your head. You sit on a chair and work on a few exercises on a computer in front of you. The QEEG records your heart and brain activity.
The procedure only takes about 30 minutes, and you can resume your normal day afterwards. It’s that simple.
The eVox system produces a report on your brain activity. It shows any deviations from that of normal brain activity from a standardized database. Your REDI Diagnostics Corp doctor interprets your results and writes a report.
Most reports reach your doctor within 24 hours after your test. The report helps your doctor develop a treatment plan that maximizes your brain activity.
