Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)

    Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) - Record stimulated nerve response time 

    NCS evaluate electrical potentials from peripheral nerves.  Technologists stimulate the nerve with an electrical current and then record how long it takes the nerve impulse to reach the muscle.  Patients referred for NC tests suffer from nerve conditions which produce numbness, tingling, muscle pain, muscle weakness, muscle cramping, abnormal movements, pain or loss or sensation, or neurological diseases affecting primarily the feet, legs, hands, arms, back, and neck.
