EMG (electromyography) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCV/EMG). This is typically performed to determined the nature of various neurological symptoms including muscle weakness, numbness and pain.
These symptoms may be associated with various neurological conditions such as nerve and muscle disorders, “pinched” nerves (radiculopathies, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica) and some other conditions.
Recording electrodes are attached to your skin and a mild electrical stimulus is sent through your nerves and the responses are recorded.
The second part of the test involves a small needle electrode, which is gently inserted into the muscle. The muscle will be tested at rest and tested as it contracts.
Digital Electroencephalogram (EEG) An EEG is a 1 hour recording of the ongoing electrical activity of the brain, which is used in the diagnosis of epilepsy and many other neurological symptoms.
Ambulatory Electroencephalography (AEEG) or brain wave recording. An EEG is a non-invasive analysis of the electrical activity of the brain. Small disc electrodes are placed on the scalp in various locations through which electrical impulse activity is recorded.
Prolonged (24 to 72 hour) EEG testing will be performed at home (ambulatory EEG monitoring) This is typically done for patients with suspected seizures, loss of consciousness or in patients with diagnosed epilepsy to determine the best treatment approach.
Computerized memory testing allows formal and objective way to evaluate patients with reduced concentration, memory and/or poor job performance.
