Nerve conduction studies and electromyography

These studies in combination with the physical examination assist in diagnosing a multitude of nerve and muscle disorders, including entrapment neuropathies, brachial and lumbosacral plexopathies, radiculopathies, polyneuropathies, myopathies, etc.

Frequently seen in primary practice symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome get a diagnosis and treatment plan, including surgical consideration, with nerve conduction studies and electromyography. Nerve root compression level is confirmed on EMG what is of particular importance when surgery is a consideration

  • Some of commonly seen diagnostic indications for NCS and EMG orders include but not limited to:
  • R 20.2 Paresthesia of skin
  • M 62.81 Muscle weakness
  • M 54.10 Radiculopathy, site unspecified
  • M 54.12 Radiculopathy, cervical region
  • M 54.16 Radiculopathy, lumbar region
  • G 54.4 Lumbosacral root disorders, not elsewhere classified
  • G 54.2 Cervical root disorders, not elsewhere classified
  • G 56.0 Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • G 56.2 Lesion of ulnar nerve
  • G 60.0 Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy
