Referrals are seen not only from other parts of India but also from all over South East Asia like Srilanka, Bangladesh, Singapore, Thaliand, Dubai, Sharjah and Kuwait.

EEG DEPARTMENT

We have three EEG machines with one digital Nicolet Video EEG capable of simultaneous video and EEG recording. A regular digital EEG machine helps record routine EEG’s in children, including photic stimulation. We also have a portable digital video EEG machine for recording EEG at the bedside for sick children in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit even while they are on the ventilator.

MUSCLE PATHOLOGY

The Muscle Pathology laboratory at KKCTH is the only one of its kind in Chennai. With the help of specially trained technicians and Pathologists, it processes biopsy specimens for various neuro-muscular disorders. The lab can do both histopathology and Immunohistochemistry – if required, further testing is arranged at the National Institute of Mental Health and Newuro Sciences in Bangalore.

TEACHING AND RESEARCH:
