Testing Information

EMG/NCV - Electromyogram and Nerve Conduction Study

EMG/NCV testing is used to evaluate the function of the nerves in the body, the electrical activity of the muscles, and how well and how fast the nerves can send the electrical signals. Testing takes approximately 1 hour and is conducted on your arms, legs or both. Please be sure you do not have any lotions or skin moisturizers on the area(s) to be tested. Please arrange for child care as children cannot be in the testing room with you.

EEG - Electroencephalogram

EEG tests are used to detect the electrical activity in the brain.  Testing takes approximately 1 hour and is conducted by placing electrodes on your scalp.  Please limit caffeine prior to testing and be sure to arrive with clean, dry hair – no hair products including hairspray and gels.  In addition, please remove any braids and/or extensions.  Please arrange for child care as children cannot be in the testing room with you.

VER/BAER/SEP - Evoked Potential Testing

Evoked potential tests can be VER-Visual Evoked Response, BAER-Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials, or SEP – Somatosensory Evoked Potentials. The tests measure the electrical activity of the brain in response to various types of stimulation. Each testing takes approximately 1 hour and is conducted by placing electrodes on your scalp and utilizing various stimulation techniques. Please arrive with clean, dry hair – no hair products including hairspray and gels. In addition, please remove any braids and/or extensions. Please arrange for childcare as children cannot be in the testing room with you.

Carotid Ultrasound/Transcranial Doppler (CUS/TCD) - Vascular Studies

Carotid ultrasound tests use sound waves to produce pictures of the arteries in the neck which carry blood from the heart to the brain. Transcranial doppler tests measure how quickly the blood flows through the blood vessels. Carotid ultrasound testing takes 30 min and carotid ultrasound with transcranial doppler testing takes an hour.

Neuropsychological Testing

Neurological testing is a way of seeing how your brain is working.  It takes approximately 3 hours.  We encourage you to bring someone with you that is involved in your day to day care.
