Evoked Potentials

These are a group of diagnostic tests which record the electrical signals produced naturally by the brain following repeated stimulation.

  • Visual Evoked Potentials (Eyes)
  • Electroretinogram (Eyes)
  • Auditory Evoked Potentials (Ears)
  • Somato-sensory Evoked Potentials (Arms and Legs)

Your doctor may ask us to test one or more of these ... read more

Nerve Conduction Studies and EMG

Nerve conduction studies (NCS) are recordings made of the electrical activity from nerves and muscles in response to stimulation.

EMG stands for Electromyogram, a recording of the electrical signals produced naturally by muscles.

These two kinds of study may be used together or separately, and we often just call them EMG. They give information about nerves, muscles and the connections between them. The information may be useful to your doctor in many different types of condition.

Your doctor may have to combine this information with other types of information to make a diagnosis ... read more
