Nerve Conduction Study (NCS)

What is the purpose of the Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) test?

The test can help to diagnose peripheral neuropathies* radiculopathies, and focal nerve compression, e.g. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Ulnar Neuropathy. The purpose of the test is to evaluate the electric response of the nerve and determine if the nerve impulse is conducting normally, at a slow speed or not transmitting at all, suggesting damage to the nerve. * Peripheral neuropathy refers to any condition that affects the normal activity of the nerves of the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system is the network of nerves that connects the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.

What is the test about?

Nerve Conduction Study (NCS) is a simple, and non-invasive test that allows our doctor to measure the health of specific nerves. In this procedure, a small electric pulse is delivered at one point of the nerve and the signal/response is recorded at another point. The nerves are stimulated at various locations depending on your symptoms.
