Electromyography (EMG), electroneurography (ENG)
Electromyography (EMG) and electroneurography (ENG) - a valuable diagnostic methods in studying the state of the peripheral nerves and muscles which measures the electrical activity of muscles and conduction of electrical signals along nerve pathways.
A study using the electromyography (EMG) and electroneurography (ENG) helps determine the effect on the nerve.
Electromyography (EMG) and electroneurography (ENG) - this is a very informative test, if a doctor wants to determine that the patient has carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, polyneuropathy (toxic, alcoholic or diabetic) or other syndromes, provoked by any other peripheral nerve traumatic injury.
A study of nerve conduction and muscle condition by EMG or ENG - a non-invasive procedure, and therefore does not cause discomfort to the patient during the test.
Electromyography (EMG) and electroneurography (ENG) can provide the following information: the presence of nerve damage, duration of nerve damage (acute or chronic), localization of nerve damage (peripheral and central), severity or extent of damage to the nerve, monitors the process of restoring the normal functioning of nerves, etc.
Electromyography (EMG) and electroneurogram (ENG) is often carried out in conjunction with MRI after a preliminary neurological examination of the patient in order to assess whether required further surgery.
Here is a list of some common diseases that require use in the diagnosis of electromyography (EMG) and electroneurogram (ENG) tests:
- Neuritis and neuropathies
- Traumatic neuropathies
- Diabetic, alcoholic and toxic polyneuropathy
- Neuralgia, neuralgic pain
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Cervicalgia and brachialgia
