Parkinson's Diagnosis

Diagnose Parkinsons Disease

Home Parkinson’s Diagnosis

Dementech uses the most advanced imaging technology coupled with some of the world's most renowned neurologists to deliver accurate diagnosis that will lead to the best possible course of treatment.

Parkinson's Assessment & Diagnostics

Early symptoms of the disease may be mild and not everyone experiences PD in the same way. However, symptoms worsen over time and may involve impaired balance, speech problems (softened voice, slurred speech), swallowing problems, bowel and bladder problems, difficulties at night (discomfort in bed, cramps, disturbed sleep pattern) and tiredness during the day. Sometimes the skin can become greasy and those affected might experience excessive sweating.

Diagnosis

Accurate diagnosis is critical in neurology and even more so for degenerative conditions. Due to the complexity involved in testing, wrong diagnosis is common with many neurological diseases.

Wrong diagnosis can expose you to the wrong course of treatment and a negative outcome.

At Dementech, we use the highest quality technology coupled with some of the world’s most renowned experts in Parkinson’s Disease to deliver accurate diagnosis that will lead to the best possible course of treatment.

Parkinson’s Disease: What To Expect

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive and incurable disorder of the nervous system. It affects movement and is characterised by tremors, stiffness and slowing down of movement.

Parkinson’s Disease And You

A Parkinson's disease guide created for patients and carers: We created this guide to help you understand your experiences, and start a dialogue about brain health.

Risk Assessment & Prevention

If one of your family members suffered or is suffering from Parkinson’s Disease then we offer an advanced testing program that can detect the probability of you ever getting the disease.

This is of critical importance for people that could be genetically predisposed as the earlier you are diagnosed the more help we can provide with a course of treatment. When Parkinson’s is diagnosed at an advanced stage, it is more difficult to deal with the common symptoms.

Cutting-edge technology developed in collaboration with Dementech offers us insight years ahead as to the possibility of you developing Parkinson’s.
