Neurological & Brain Conditions

Headaches, dizziness, memory lapses, or weakness are all symptoms that could point to a variety of neurological and brain conditions. At Tellica Imaging, we understand the importance of timely and accurate diagnosis for optimal neurological care.

Our state-of-the-art CT and MRI scanners play a vital role in revealing underlying issues within the brain and head, empowering providers to make informed treatment decisions. We will be your partner on the path to a comprehensive diagnosis and a healthier you.

CT scans and MRIs can diagnose most neurological and brain conditions. At Tellica Imaging, we use our imaging technology to investigate a wide range of these conditions.

Brain Conditions

Symptoms like frequent confusion and memory lapses that are disruptive to your daily life may be symptoms of a brain condition. At Tellica Imaging, we understand the importance of early and accurate diagnosis for optimal brain health.

These symptoms could point to a variety of brain conditions, some more serious than others. A timely diagnosis can lead to more effective treatment options and a better chance of managing the condition.

Advanced imaging techniques, like CT scans and MRIs, play a vital role in diagnosing these conditions. We partner with your healthcare provider to assess your symptoms and determine if further investigation is necessary for conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and/or memory loss.

Cerebrovascular Conditions

When blood flow to the brain is interrupted or compromised, it can lead to a variety of cerebrovascular conditions. These conditions can range from mild to life-threatening, and early diagnosis is essential for optimal treatment outcomes.

The complex network of blood vessels in your brain is responsible for delivering vital oxygen and nutrients to your brain cells, keeping them healthy and functioning properly. Problems with blood flow can cause conditions such as:

  • Stroke: A stroke occurs when blood flow to part of the brain is interrupted.
  • Brain Aneurysms: A weak bulge in a blood vessel wall in your brain.
  • Circle of Willis Anomalies: Anomalies in the anatomical structure at the base of the brain where several major arteries converge.

At Tellica Imaging, we utilize advanced imaging techniques like CT scans and MRIs to visualize blockages, detect internal bleeding, and identify aneurysms. Understanding the nature and location of the problem can help your provider determine the most appropriate course of action.

Carotid Artery & Venous Thrombosis

Early diagnosis of carotid artery disease and intracranial venous thrombosis is crucial for preventing potentially devastating consequences. This can include conditions such as stroke or permanent brain damage. 

Two major carotid arteries, located on either side of your neck, deliver oxygen-rich blood to a large portion of your brain. A similar network of veins then drains blood away from the brain, carrying waste products for removal. If blood flow through these vessels is interrupted by blockages or clots due to carotid artery disease or intracranial venous thrombosis, it can have serious consequences.

Tellica Imaging offers highly advanced technology and expert providers who help with the timely diagnosis of such conditions. Our imaging tests can provide a clear picture of any blockages or narrowing within the arteries or veins to help your healthcare provider determine the most appropriate course of treatment.

Neurological Conditions

While neurological conditions can present with a wide range of symptoms, a definitive diagnosis often requires the use of advanced imaging techniques. At Tellica Imaging, we offer various imaging tools that can provide valuable insights into the structure and function of the nervous system, aiding in the diagnosis of neurological conditions.

The nervous system is the body's intricate network of communication, acting as the control center for everything we do. It carries messages between the brain, spinal cord, nerves, muscles, and sensory organs, allowing us to move, feel, think, and experience the world around us. 

When the nervous system is affected by disease or injury, a variety of neurological conditions can arise. These maladies can manifest in various ways, impacting movement, sensation, balance, cognitive function, and even behavior.

Early diagnosis allows for the development of a personalized treatment plan to manage symptoms, improve quality of life, and potentially slow disease progression. 

At Tellica Imaging, advanced imaging tools, such as CT scans and MRIs, provide valuable insights into the structure and function of the nervous system, aiding in the diagnosis of neurological conditions. By visualizing abnormalities within the nervous system, healthcare providers can more accurately diagnose the underlying cause of your symptoms and determine the most appropriate course of treatment.

Stroke & Neurovascular Assessment

A stroke is a medical emergency that occurs when blood flow to part of the brain is suddenly interrupted. Every minute counts, as brain cells deprived of oxygen and nutrients begin to die. Following a stroke, the focus shifts from diagnosing the stroke itself to assessing the damage and planning treatment to address its neurological and vascular impact.

This is where Tellica Imaging excels. We are equipped with advanced imaging technology and a team of dedicated healthcare professionals to provide rapid and accurate neurovascular assessments after a stroke.

We understand the urgency of stroke care. That's why Tellica Imaging is committed to providing timely and accurate assessments to support your stroke recovery journey.

Hearing & Balance Disorders

Your sense of hearing and balance play a vital role in how you experience the world and a disruption in these senses can significantly impact your daily life. Hearing allows us to communicate, enjoy music and sounds, and stay alert to your surroundings. Balance keeps you coordinated, stable, and prevents falls.

While CT scans and MRIs are not typically the primary diagnostic tools for hearing and balance disorders, imaging can sometimes play a role in identifying the underlying cause of these conditions. At Tellica Imaging, we understand that a comprehensive approach to diagnosis is important. 

In some cases, specialized MRI techniques may be used to look for certain inner ear disorders or to rule out other neurological conditions that could be mimicking hearing or balance problems.

Vision & Orbital Health

When the orbit or the structures within the eye socket are affected by various conditions, it can threaten your vision and overall well-being. Your eyes are windows to the world, allowing you to experience the beauty and wonder around you. The bony socket surrounding each eye, known as the orbit, plays a critical role in protecting these precious organs.

Infections or inflammation of the bones, muscles, or soft tissues in the orbit can have a severe impact on your vision and orbital health. Early and accurate diagnosis of orbital conditions is crucial for preserving vision and preventing complications.  

Tellica Imaging understands the importance of safeguarding your vision and offers advanced imaging techniques vital for diagnosing these conditions. If your healthcare provider recommends imaging as part of your orbital evaluation, we can provide you with high-quality scans and a comfortable experience.
