Neurology (from Greek: νε?ρον, neuron, and the suffix -λογ?α -logia "study of") is a branch of medicine dealing withdisorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous system (and its subdivisions, the autonomic nervous system and the somatic nervous system); including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.

A neurologist is a physician specializing in neurology and trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat neurological disorders.] Neurologists may also be involved in clinical research, and clinical trials, as well as basic research andtranslational research. While neurology is a non-surgical specialty, its corresponding surgical specialty isneurosurgery. Neurology, as a branch of medicine, relies on neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system in all of its aspects.

Neurology is dealing with the disorders of the nervous system. Neurology tests deal with the diagnosis of all categories of conditions and diseases involving the central and peripheral nervous system including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.

Neurological diagnostic tests help to identify the specific nature of neurological diseases, conditions, or injuries. The diagnostic test results can help you in taking up appropriate medication, if needed any. The Neurology diagnostic division of Hi. Tech mentored by a doctor in-charge has a well-experienced and well-qualified laboratory technicians to help you to diagnosis if you are developing any kind of neurological disorders. To have an early detection of any kind of neurological disorders, Hi. Tech has the most sophisticated laboratory equipment

(EEG) is an electrophysiological monitoring method to record electrical activity of the brain. It is typically noninvasive, with the electrodes placed along the scalp, although invasive electrodes are sometimes used such as in within the neurons of the brain.[1] In clinical contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a period of time,[1] as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. Diagnostic applications generally focus either on event-related potentials or on the spectral content of EEG. The former investigates potential fluctuations time locked to an event like stimulus onset or button press. The latter analyses the type of neural oscillations (popularly called "brain waves") that can be observed in EEG signals in the frequency domain.

EEG is most often used to diagnose epilepsy, which causes abnormalities in EEG readings.[2] It is also used to diagnose sleep disorders, depth of anesthesia, coma, encephalopathies, and brain death. EEG used to be a first-line method of diagnosis for tumors, stroke and other focal brain disorders,[3][4] but this use has decreased with the advent of high-resolution anatomical imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). Despite limited spatial resolution, EEG continues to be a valuable tool for research and diagnosis. It is one of the few mobile techniques available and offers millisecond-range temporal resolution which is not possible with CT, PET or MRI.

Derivatives of the EEG technique include evoked potentials (EP), which involves averaging the EEG activity time-locked to the presentation of a stimulus of some sort (visual, somatosensory, or auditory). Event-related potentials (ERPs) refer to averaged EEG responses that are time-locked to more complex processing of stimuli; this technique is used in cognitive science, cognitive psychology, and psychophysiological research.

EMG involves recording electrical activity of nerve and muscles. It involves inserting a needle in a skeletal muscle and changes produced during relaxation and physical activity are recorded either on a magnetic tape or on paper EMG is of use in cases of muscle disorders like myopathy, motor neuron disease.Electromyography (EMG) is an electrodiagnostic medicine technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. EMG is performed using an instrument called an electromyograph, to produce a record called an electromyogram.

An electromyograph detects the electrical potential generated by musclecells when these cells are electrically or neurologically activated. The signals can be analyzed to detect medical abnormalities, activation level, or recruitment order or to analyze the biomechanics of human or animal movement.

An electromyogram, also called EMG and electromyography, is a test that evaluates electrical activity within your nerves and muscles. Your doctor may recommend an EMG to help diagnose muscle weakness, muscular dystrophy, and other neuromuscular abnormalities. An EMG involves inserting tiny needles into your muscles to record electrical activity.

An EMG is only one method used to diagnose neuromuscular abnormalities. You may have less invasive testing options depending on your condition. Discuss all your diagnostic options with your doctor to understand which options are best for you.

 

 

Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) is a test to see how fast electrical signals move through a nerve. Patches called surface electrodes are placed on the skin over nerves at various locations. Each patch gives off a very mild electrical impulse, which stimulates the nerve.The test results of both EMG and NCV are given with the detailed reports of Dr. Gigy Kuruttukulam, Lakshore Hospital.

is a medical diagnostic test commonly used to evaluate the function, especially the ability of electrical conduction, of the motor and sensory nerves of the human body. These tests are performed by medical specialists such as specialists in clinical neurophysiology, physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation [PMR] physicians), and neurologists who subspecialize in electrodiagnostic medicine. In the United States, neurologists receive training in electrodiagnostic medicine (performing needle electromyography and NCSs) during a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology, electrodiagnostic medicine, or neuromuscular medicine.[1][2] PMR physicians receive this training during their residency and can get further training in a neuromuscular fellowship. Outside the US, clinical neurophysiologists learn needle EMG and NCS testing.

Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) is a common measurement made during this test. The term NCV often is used to mean the actual test, but this may be misleading, since velocity is only one measurement in the test suite.
