Neuro physiological unit

Electrophysiological tests are non-invasive tools indispensable in many diagnostic dilemmas.
Being objective and reproducible they have a considerable prognostic role.

The neurophysiology unit of Bostan Diagnostic Center includes tests such as: EMG, EEG, BAEP, SSEP, VEP, ERG, EOG
