Electrodiagnostic Medicine

Electrodiagnosis includes a battery of tests which study the neuromuscular system. Common diagnoses for which such studies will be of value include:

  • Nerve entrapment, injury or disease, such as Bell's Palsy, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Radiculopathies – cervical, lumbosacral
  • Brachial/Lumbosacral plexus injuries
  • Anterior horn cell dysfunction such as ALS
  • Neuromuscular junction disorders such as Myasthenia Gravis, Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome
  • Muscle diseases such as Polymyositis and myopathy of various causes

Prior to the test, patients receive information sheets describing the test. Following the test, a preliminary report is faxed within 24 hours to the referring physician. A more extensive report is sent three to four days after the test.
