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.
An abnormal EMG result may be a sign of peripheral neuropathy, polymyositis, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis or other neuromuscular disease.
Electrophysiological (EP) studies assess the electrical activity of the heart and pinpoint the location and severity of a possible arrhythmia.
Endoluminal fundoplication (ELF) can potentially eliminate the need to take medication to control GERD.
An endometrial ablation is a procedure that destroys the uterine lining and is used to treat dysfunctional or abnormal uterine bleeding.
