Atlantic Neuroscience Institute’s neuroradiology departments at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center diagnose diseases of the brain, head, neck and spine, including:
- Conditions caused by trauma
- Congenital abnormalities
- Diseases of the blood vessels
Diagnostic Services at Overlook and Morristown Medical Centers:
- Angiography – Imaging technique used to produce images of the blood vessels and other key areas of the body, including the brain
- Biplane neuroangiography
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including angiography (MRA)
- Positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) – A scanning device that combines the data from two scans into one comprehensive image, allowing physicians to quickly and more accurately identify neurological and brain disorders
- Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) – Helps determine where a seizure originates in the brain by measuring blood flow in different areas.
In addition, Overlook Medical offers the following diagnostic services:
- Computed axial tomography (CAT) or CT scan, including:
- 320-slice Aquilion One CT scan – The most advanced CT scanner available, it scans the entire brain in seconds with the lowest radiation dose of any CT scanner to produce advanced CT angiography and perfusion studies rapidly, which speeds diagnosis and treatment for patients.
- 4D CT angiography with perfusion – Dynamic imaging, using contrast media, to allow radiologists to view continuous 4D (similar to video) real-time images of the heart and brain.
- Functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI)
- MRI with diffusion tensor and perfusion imaging
- PET/CT with Cortex-ID™ – Helps detect Alzheimer’s disease; this computer program enables our clinicians to compare a patient’s brain PET/CT scan to a database of age-matched normal subjects to check for abnormalities.
Morristown Medical also offers 64-slice CT scans for diagnosing patients with neuro trauma.
