Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Pediatric Neurology Diagnostic Tests & Screenings

Diseases affecting a child’s nervous system can be complex, requiring the most accurate diagnostic services to pinpoint the source of the issue. At the Division of Child Neurology and Developmental Medicine at Atlantic Health System Children's Health, we provide a wide range of procedures to evaluate young patients with neurological conditions:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to produce images of the organs and structures inside the body
  • Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)uses MRI techniques to detect problems of the arteries, veins and blood vessels
  • Angiography – produces images of the blood vessels and other key areas of the body, including the brain
  • Cine MRI – measures the flow of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF)
  • Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) – uses a magnetic field to examine metabolic changes in the brain
  • Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies – applies brief electrical impulses to the skin at different sites to measure muscle responsiveness
  • Computed tomography (CT) scanning and 3D reconstruction CT uses X-rays to create cross-sectional images in patients with skull deformities
  • Neuropsychological and educational evaluations

As part of Atlantic Health System Children’s Health,  and in conjunction with Atlantic Neuroscience Institute, our program also offers neurophysiological tests, such as:

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) and sleep-deprived EEG records the brain’s electrical activity over the course of approximately 40 minutes in the physician’s office
  • 24-hour ambulatory electroencephalogram (EEG) – uses highly-sensitive electrodes placed on the scalp to record the electrical activity of the brain while the patient is at home
  • Video monitored EEG – allows physicians to observe both epileptic and non-epileptic seizures
  • Magnetoencephalography (MEG) uses precise sensors to detect and record the magnetic fields associated with electrical activity in the brain

Physician services are provided through Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children’s Hospital.
