EMG and NCS Tests

Electromyogram and Nerve Conduction Studies with Expert Interpretation in Bethel Park, PA

Like any medical specialty, neurology has its own specific tests and diagnostics. Two useful neurologic tests are electromyograms (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS).

Dr. Ausi uses electromyograms to assess your muscles’ response to nerve signals. An EMG may be ordered to check for a neuromuscular disorder or other problem. At Neurology Specialists of Greater Pittsburgh, we feature brand new and high-tech EMG equipment for the most accurate results.

A nerve conduction study is often performed in conjunction with an EMG for a more complete picture of your neurologic status. An NCS measures the strength and speed of nerve signals in your body. This diagnostic can provide valuable information when investigating neuropathy and numerous other neurological conditions.

Of course, correct interpretation of these test results is imperative, and Dr. Ausi has the training and experience to provide that interpretation. You can schedule your testing appointment or consultation now by calling Neurology Specialists of Greater Pittsburgh at (412) 477-0245.
