Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • What is an EEG?

    • An EEG is a painless procedure that uses small, flat metal discs (electrodes) placed to the scalp in order to detect normal (and/or abnormal) electrical activity from the brain.  Patients with spells suggesting seizures and epilepsy will typically undergo this test, which is critical in assisting Neurology providers in diagnosing and treating their conditions.  

    • There are multiple types of EEGs, including short (routine) EEGs which are conducted in the office during normal business hours.  For those who require more extensive monitoring, we are one of the few regional providers that offer ambulatory EEGs, which allow patients to be monitored in the comfort of their own homes.

Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyogram (NCS/EMG)
  • EMG and NCS are used to evaluate symptoms involving the nerves and muscles in the body.   These procedures are helpful in the evaluation of disorders of the nerves, muscles, neuromuscular junction and to some degree, and indirectly, the spinal cord.

  • EMG portion of the test is performed with a fine disposable and sterile needle electrode that is inserted into the affected muscle(s). 

  • The following is a list of conditions where NCS/EMG are useful or crucial for diagnosis and management: Neuropathies, Radiculopathies (pinched nerves), Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Ulnar Neuropathy, Myopathies or Myositis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Myasthenia Gravis, among others.  

  • Preparing for a EMG/NCS

    • Bathe or shower on day of and prior to the exam to remove body oils

    • Do not use bath oils, lotions, or creams that leave skin residue before the appointment
