Electromyogram/Nerve Conduction Velocity (EMG/NCV)

This two-part test is used to diagnose neuromuscular disorders and nerve injuries such as:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Polyneuropathy
  • Myasthenia Gravis

Evoked Potentials

Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potential/Response (BAER)

  • Records brain reactions to auditory stimuli
  • Detects problems in the auditory pathways of the brain/brainstem
  • Not used to check hearing impairment
  • Non-invasive, painless

Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEPs)

  • Records nervous system reaction time to small electrical impulses
  • Helps diagnose certain nervous system conditions

Videonystagmogram (VNG) ENG

This test helps determine the source of dizziness/vertigo/imbalance.

  • Non-invasive, painless

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

This test records electrical activity of the brain.

  • Helps in the diagnosis and treatment of seizure disorder, stroke, dementia and brain injury
  • Non-invasive, painless

Ambulatory EEG

This test uses a lightweight, portable device that records brainwaves to a small data disk for 24 – 48 hours.

  • Useful when a routine EEG does not last long enough
  • Non-invasive, painless

Video EEG

Video EEG monitoring is an EEG with simultaneous time-locked video.

  • Investigates physical or sensory symptoms which may or may not be related to seizures
  • Monitors shaking, passing out, facial twitches, seizures
  • Helps physicians determine correlation between brain activity and symptoms in question
