Diagnostics for CNS-related diseases

Baseline and specialty testing for diagnosis and therapy

Baseline and specialty testing for diagnosis and therapy
Neurological diagnostics is based on a combination of the patient's medical history, clinical examinations and laboratory diagnostics. Due to the large number of possible differential diagnoses, laboratory diagnostics has attained a vital role and is now an integral part of the clinical routine.
One key element is serum diagnostics, to help rule out e.g. inflammation, vitamin deficiencies, endocrine or metabolic disorders or paraneoplastic syndrome. CSF testing provides additional diagnostic assessment of potential bacterial, autoimmune or neurodegenerative diseases.
