Neuropsychiatry Outpatient Clinic

Clinic Services

The Neuropsychiatry Outpatient Clinic works with the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders (schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, mood disorders, depressive bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, panic disorder and psychiatric symptoms associated with neurodegenerative diseases). The diagnostic therapy provides an initial clinical interview according to psychiatric standards and neurological diagnostic hypothesis, followed by administration of questionnaires and tests carried out to obtain a detailed psychopathologic, cognitive and functional profile of the patient. In particular Clinic specializes in early detection of these types of disorders and their prevention.

 

Cognitive Disorders and Dementias

Within the Special Diagnostic Center for Cognitive Disorders and Dementias the Outpatient Clinic makes specialized investigations regarding the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of brain aging, initial forms of cognitive impairment and dementia (Alzheimer's disease, Front temporal issues, Lewy Body Dementia, Cerebrovascular and other disorders). Particular care is taken in analyzing the structural and functional brain correlations of these disorders using neuroimaging techniques (MRI), both conventional and advanced non-conventional techniques. The rehabilitation of mental and cognitive disorders is done using innovative techniques, many developed in research projects funded by the Ministry of Health and the European Community.

Due to the limitation on the performances that the Santa Lucia Foundation is authorized to provide in agreement with the Public Health Service of the Lazio Region this access method is only available to people who are exempt from the Public SSN rates (priority for the weaker segment of the population) and to people under the age of 30 (priority for the economical weaker segment of the population). In some cases, the access criteria in SSN mode may vary (eg priority to cancer patients). This access method requires your public health doctor’s authorization. You cannot choose your specialist.
