Nerve Conduction Velocity
A nerve conduction study is a test commonly used to evaluate the function, especially the ability of electrical conduction, of the motor and sensory nerves of the human body.
The two types of tests performed at DPMA are the Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) test and the Electromyography (EMG) test. The NCV test measures the electrical properties of the nerves themselves, while the EMG measures the electrical properties of the muscles that nerves are attached to.
Each test can help diagnose a particular disorder and assist the doctor in locating the specific nerve areas that need attention.
