Neurology tests are conducted to diagnose peripheral neuropathy. Depending on the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and physical examination, various tests are recommended as diagnostic measures. Hi-Care Diagnostics also conducts the following tests:
• Electrodiagnostic tests- This measures the electrical activity of muscles and nerves. By measuring the electrical activity they are able to determine if there is nerve damage, the extent of the damage, and potentially the cause of the damage. Frequently the neurologist will recommend common, non-invasive neurological evaluations such as electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) testing.
