Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)

Nerve conduction studies give information about how well and how fast the nerves in your body send electrical impulses.
What is nerve conduction study?
Nerve conduction studies are used for a wide variety of reasons including:

  • To assess nerve damage following an injury.
  •  To check for damage to nerves, caused by conditions such as   diabetes.
  • To test for conditions affecting the nervous system.
  • To check for ‘trapped’ nerves-conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)

How do you prepare for NCS?
Minimal preparation is required for NCS. Patients are urged to keep the area of testing clean and free of fragrance, lotion and/or cream. Your test will generally take between 30 minutes depending on the study that has been ordered.
