Innovation & Technology

The NSU team observes patients’ minute-to-minute progress with advanced monitoring equipment, including:

  • Intracranial pressure monitoring—provides continuous information about pressures within the brain
  • Brain tissue oxygenation monitoring—measures the amount of oxygen that is being delivered to brain tissue
  • Cerebral blood flow monitoring—measures the amount of blood flow going to the brain
  • Transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography—has a variety of uses including, detecting blocked arteries in the brain, intraoperative monitoring, and measurement of dynamic cerebrovascular responses
  • Continuous video EEG monitoring—a specialized form of EEG testing that allows physicians to learn more about seizures by viewing them directly
  • CT angiography—a CT scan that uses intravenous contrast to show all the blood vessels inside the brain
  • CT perfusion—to measure blood flow in the brain with a CT scanner
  • MRI diffusion imaging—shows area of brain tissue that is damaged
  • MRI perfusion imaging—shows blood flow and can estimate weather damaged tissue is still salvageable with therapy
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)—a form of brain imaging that shows brain metabolism
