Electromyography Lab

Our state-of-the-art Electromyography Laboratory provides comprehensive nerve conduction studies and EMG evaluations performed by staff with expertise in neurodiagnostic testing. An invaluable diagnostic tool, electromyography (EMG) results provide evidence in support of diagnoses of:

  • Peripheral neuropathies
  • Motor neuron diseases
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Spinal muscular atrophy
  • Muscle disorders
  • Myopathy
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Neuromuscular junction disorders
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Entrapment neuropathies
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ulnar and peroneal neuropathies
  • Traumatic nerve injury
  • Evaluation of the brachial plexus
  • Facial neuropathy

Because electrodiagnostic evaluation is an extension of clinical findings, the lab's medical specialists perform a focused neuromuscular examination, including history and physical, before conducting the electrical test. Both Parveen Athar, M.D., and Suur Biliciler, M.D., perform EMG studies.

In addition to nerve conduction and EMG, electrodiagnostic studies available at the EMG Lab include:

  • Repetitive nerve stimulation
  • Blink reflexes
  • Cranial nerve studies
  • Single-fiber electromyography
  • Facial/trigeminal neuropathy

The EMG Lab conducts electrical studies of the lower motor neurons, including anterior horn cell, nerve root, plexus, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction and muscles, to aid in understanding and evaluating neuromuscular disorders. Studies include:

  • Routine high-quality nerve conduction studies
  • Electromyography
  • Advanced neurophysiologic studies for peripheral neuropathies and nerve entrapment
  • Neuromuscular junction testing
  • Facial nerve electrophysiology
  • Autonomic nervous system testing
  • Pudendal studies for fecal incontinence
  • c-DNA microarrays

Referring physicians receive timely reports that include recommendations for further management.
