An EEG is a non-invasive procedure that traces the brain’s electrical activity. During the procedure, electrodes are place on the scalp to study brain function. An EEG may be performed:
NCV and EMG
An NCV and EMG are complementary electrodiagnostic tests that work in combination to measure the electrical activity in nerves and muscles. Results are used to detect, process, and record electrical muscle activity in order to aid in the diagnosis of neuromuscular disease.
NCV is a test to evaluate the ability to send an electrical impulse through motor and sensory nerves of the human body. During the test patients will have surface electrodes attached on various areas, along the contour of the nerves, to record the electrical impulse.
EMG tests the electrical activity of the muscles. This involves the physician placing a very thin needle into various muscles.
EMG/NCV can help diagnose many muscle and nerve disorders, including:
