To ensure quality and expedite patient care, Houston Neurology Associates performs certain necessary neurodiagnostic testing in the comfort and convenience of our office.

The following tests are performed in our office by either a technician or by one of our doctors:

Electroencephalogram (EEG):

The EEG records the brains continuous electrical activity through electrodes attached to the scalp. It is used to help diagnose structural diseases of the brain and episodes such as seizures, fainting or blacking out. This test is painless.

Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCV):

An EMG measures and records electrical activity from the muscles and nerves. This may be helpful in determining the cause of pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the muscles or nerves. Small needles are inserted into the muscles and mild electrical shocks are given to stimulate the nerve. Discomfort may be associated with this test.
