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. You may take medications as perscribed and eat/drink like normal.  Please make prior arrangments for childcare as we don't recommend children be in the testing room for their safety as well as yours.  More Information

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 make prior arrangments for childcare as we don't recommend children be in the testing room for their safety as well as yours.

VER/BAER - Evoked Potential Testing

Evoked potential tests can be VER-Visual Evoked Response or BAER-Brainstem Auditory 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 make prior arrangments for childcare as we don't recommend children be in the testing room for their safety as well as yours.

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 helps your doctor better understand how your brain is working.  While MRI or CT scans can show us what the brain looks like, they cannot tell us how the brain is actually working.  In order to find out how your brain is processing information, we have to make you think.  A neuropsychological evaluation does just that, it makes you think. The test takes 2-4 hours.  We encourage you to bring someone with you that is involved in your day to day care. Take all medications like normal except ADD medication.  More Information
