Neuropsychological assessment—As part of the presurgical diagnostic process, an evaluation of mental abilities (such as memory) is performed. These abilities can be affected by moyamoya disease. The evaluation, which consists of paper and pencil tests and questions, provides a baseline and provides the team information about how the brain is functioning.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
