Diagnostic Testing Provided

Electroencephalography (EEG): Measures the electrical activity in the cerebral cortex, providing important information about the various areas of cortical brain function. The EEG is a crucial tool in the diagnosing, treatment and monitoring of a variety of disorders such as epilepsy, movement disorders and other neurodegenerative diseases. Medical Neurology provides ambulatory EEG as well as standard EEG monitoring. This enables us to correlate clinical symptoms with electrophysiologic findings. The ambulatory EEG allows patients to remain at home and continue to be monitored for up to 72 hours.

 

Electromyography and Nerve Conduction Velocity Study (EMG/NCV): An EMGstudy measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. A NCV study measures the velocity of electrical signals along a nerve. Measuring the electrical activity in muscles and nerves can help in the diagnosing of disorders including muscular dystrophy, myopathies, peripheral neuropathies, radiculopathies and more.
