Tests & Treatments

  • Electroencephalogram
    The procedure is performed by a specially trained EEG technologist to measure brain activity, and neurologists utilize the results to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders.

  • Electromyography
    An abnormal EMG result may be a sign of peripheral neuropathy, polymyositis, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis or other neuromuscular disease.

  • Evoked Potentials Studies
    This group of tests of the nervous system measure electrical signals to the brain in response to sight, sound and touch.

  • Nerve Conduction Velocity
    If you are experiencing numbness, tingling and/or burning sensations in your legs or arms, your physician may order a nerve conduction velocity test to determine if nerve damage has occurred.
