Ipsum Diagnostics is a Pathology Laboratory located in Atlanta, Georgia. We perform Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density (ENFD) testing, which provides an objective diagnosis for patients suffering from small fiber neuropathy. In addition to ENFD testing, we offer Congo Red and H&E testing. Congo Red is performed to identify the presence of amyloids, and H&E detects the presence of Vasculitis, or inflammation of the blood vessels. Both of these conditions can be a causation of small fiber neuropathy. Together, these tests can provide an accurate diagnosis, allowing providers to promptly identify and treat their patient's small fiber neuropathy.
In order to utilize this diagnostic test, a provider will perform a 3mm punch biopsy procedure, and ship the sample to Ipsum Diagnostics for testing. The provider has the ability to bill accordingly for performing the biopsy procedure. Ipsum Diagnostics will provide the necessary supplies to perform this simple procedure and send the specimen to our laboratory. With our accurate and prompt results, you can provide the quality of care your patients need.
