Technological advances have greatly enhanced our ability to accurately and correctly diagnose many neurological ailments. Nevertheless, the most crucial information is usually obtained during the initial visit with your physician. The patient interview and neurological examination that are performed during this initial visit will guide your doctor in deciding what examinations, if any, are needed.
Some investigations are performed in order to confirm a diagnostic impression. A confirmatory result then leads to discussions about therapeutic options. Other investigations are undertaken in order to exclude possible diagnostic etiologies. In this case, a normal study provides reassurance that potentially serious conditions are not being missed.
