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.

Brain Aneurysm Diagnostic Tests and Screenings

Diagnosing a brain aneurysm depends on whether it is ruptured or unruptured. At Atlantic Neuroscience Institute’s Brain Aneurysm Center, located at Overlook Medical Center, we’re well-equipped to evaluate both.

Unruptured brain aneurysms can only be detected by taking images of the brain arteries – either through conventional angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computer tomography angiography (CTA) scans.
