Nerve Conduction Velocities (NCV)

Nerve Conduction Studies are used in a similar patient population as EMG, where the diagnosis of pain is not entirely attributable to vascular causes.

It measures the conduction of peripheral nerves, from when an impulse is triggered, to when it reaches the target muscle. It is completely noninvasive, painless, and when used in combination with EMG, gives a realistic and accurate estimate of the neurologic or muscular component to the cause of symptoms.

Tests are read by our staff Musculoskeletal and Neurologic Medicine physician, Dr. Sudberg, and in combination with vascular studies gives us a realistic estimate of how likely we are to help patients with a procedure, in order for our patients to make the most informed decision regarding their care.
