Edward provides the EEG and EMG services on an outpatient basis, as well as for patients admitted to the hospital. An Ambulatory EEG is similar to a routine EEG, with the exception that the patient will be monitored continuously for an extended period of time based on the neurologist's assessment of the patient's symptoms. Long Term EEG Monitoring with Video provides a correlation of recorded behavior (video) and EEG activity over a prolonged period of time.
The electroencephalogram (EEG) is performed to aid in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as headaches, dizziness, seizure disorders, strokes, brain tumors and degenerative brain disease. This test records the electrical activity of the brain. Sensitive monitoring equipment records the activity through electrodes placed on the patient's scalp.
The Electromyography (EMG) aids in the diagnosis of the following conditions: peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy, Guillain-Barre syndrome, facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and spinal disc herniation. It involves testing the electrical activity of muscles and the nerves. Surface electrodes are used to test the nerves; this procedure is known as Nerve Conductive. This test is commonly used to evaluate the function and the electrical conduction of the motor and sensory nerves of the human body.
