At Shanti Gopal Hospital, we have professionals having years of experience. They do medical test used to measure the electrical activity of the brain via electrodes applied to your scalp. It is used to diagnose neurological conditions. EEG may be performed continuously during the night while you are asleep
Our neurologists examine the EEG recording for abnormalities in the brain-wave pattern, which may reflect diseases of the nervous system.
Electromyography (EMG) involves testing the electrical activity of muscles. Often, EMG testing is done with another test that measures the conducting function of nerves, known as Nerve Conduction Test. EMG may aid with the diagnosis of nerve compression or injury, nerve root injury and with other problems of the muscles or nerves.
At Shanti Gopal, we have specialized Neurologists for this. EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
The department of Nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) at Shanti Gopal Hospital is highly experienced. NCV is an electrical test that is used to determine the adequacy of the conduction of the nerve impulse as it courses down a nerve. This test is used to detect signs of nerve injury.
In this test, the nerve is electrically stimulated, and the electrical impulse 'down stream' from the stimulus is measured. This is usually done with surface patch electrodes (they are similar to those used for an electrocardiogram) that are placed on the skin over the nerve at various locations.
When is a nerve conduction velocity test used?
Symptoms that might prompt a health care professional to order a nerve conduction velocity test include numbness, tingling, and/or burning sensations. A normal body temperature must be maintained for the nerve conduction velocity test, because low body temperatures slow the speed of nerve conduction.
