Nerve Conduction Studies
A Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) measures how electrical signals travel through a nerve. As a result, this test can help identify the presence, location and extent of conditions that affect nerves. A NCS may also assist in finding the cause of symptoms such as numbness, tingling and persistent pain, especially that experienced in the hands, arms, legs and feet. The neuroscientist will attach some electrodes to the skin over your nerve, before using a stimulator to send short and mild electrical pulses to stimulate the nerve. Whilst not painful, these pulses may feel uncomfortable. The nerve responses are recorded as part of the test.
A NCS will take approximately 30 minutes to perform. It is a safe and non-invasive test. The results of the NCS are viewed and reported by the neurologist. In your follow up consultation with the neurologist, your results will be discussed your results will be discussed and any further investigations that are required will be organised. A copy of the report will also be forwarded to your referring doctor.
EEG | Electroencephalography
An Electroencephalogram (EEG) measures electrical activity in the brain, tracking and recording brain wave patterns. The neuroscientist will attach several electrodes (small metal discs) to your scalp, applying a gel to help the electrodes remain in place and improve the reading. These electrodes transfer information from your brain to a machine that measures and records the data. An EEG will take approximately 45 minutes to perform.
During this time, the neuroscientist may ask you to lie back, open or close your eyes, breathe more deeply, or look at a flashing light. As part of the test, your body motions will also be captured on video. An EEG is painless and safe. The results of the EEG are viewed and reported by the neurologist.
In your follow up consultation with the neurologist, your results will be discussed and any further investigations that are required will be organised. A copy of the report will also be forwarded to your referring doctor.
