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 Tumor Diagnostic Tests and Screenings

At the Gerald J. Glasser Brain Tumor Center, part of Atlantic Neuroscience Institute and Carol G. Simon Cancer Center, we know that the timely, accurate diagnosis of brain tumors is vital to improving outcomes.

Our brain tumor testing and diagnostic services include:

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with diffusion and perfusion imaging
– Diffusion imaging helps identify the cellular structure of a brain tumor and perfusion imaging provides data on the blood flow to the tumor, which helps evaluate treatment results.
Functional (MRI)
– Patients perform verbal and motor tasks during an MRI, while blood flow to the regions of the brain is measured. This helps physicians identify the language and motor/sensory networks within the brain in relation to the tumor’s location.
Diffusion tensor imaging
– Surgeons use this technique to identify the white matter fiber connections within different regions of the brain cortex, so that they can be preserved using tailored treatments.
Stereotactic image guided brain biopsy
– This minimally-invasive procedure begins with a computer-generated 3D model of the brain based on a patient’s MRI results. Next, surgeons use the model to calculate a precise path through which a biopsy probe can travel to obtain a small brain tissue sample.
Neuro-pathology and tumor subtyping
– Our neuropathology experts use molecular testing and tumor classification to predict the expected response to therapy. This plays a critical role in determining the ultimate course of treatment for a patient.
