Neurology

The Department of Neurology is part of the IMOGEN Institute and offers some of the most up-to-date facilities of its kind in the country. It features high performance equipment and systems and offers a wide range of medical services in the fields of neurology and neurophysiology:

4-channel Viking EDX 4-channel Electromyogram System coupled with the MagPro X100 Magnetic Stimulator

Polisomnograf with 44 channels “Nic One V44”. Reaction time monitoring system coupled with the CantabECLIPSE V5.0 Cognitive Function Assessment Console, including the software license for research and the following software tests: Paired Associates Learning, Spatial Spatial Memory, Spatial Spam, Stockings of Cambridge.

Examinations within the department are: electroencephalography, electroneurography, electroneuromiography, evoked visual potentials, evoked motor potentials, evoked somatosensitive potentials.

Systems also allow for electroencephalographic and polysomnographic examinations to be performed in adults and children in optimal conditions.

Our patients are subject to high quality and precise investigations due to the close collaboration between our department and the Imaging Department of the Imogen Center, which is equipped with a General Electric Optima CT660 128 slices CT scanner and a General Electric Discovery 750 w MRI system, with a magnetic field of 3 Tesla.

The Department of Neurology serves the County Emergency Hospital in Cluj-Napoca with all its departments, especially those of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

The Neurophysiology Laboratory performs diagnostic tests for the following diseases: multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, lateral amyotrophic sclerosis, incarceration syndromes, myopathy and polyneuropathy of different etiologies.

Research conducted within the department aims to diagnose and follow congenital brain malformations and also long-term correlation of intrauterine development parameters with psychomotor acquisitions of corresponding age stages. Collaboration with the Department of Radiology is aimed at the study of normal fetal brain development with special MRI sequences and establishing correlations with psychomotor development parameters.
