Electromyography & Nerve Conduction Study (EMG & NCS) also known as Electrodiagnosis, is an assessment of a patient by a physician using a series of tests to establish an accurate diagnosis of a presenting clinical problem that suggests a neuromuscular disorder.
It is an extension of the clinical examination to assess the functional status of the peripheral neuromuscular system and is useful in the diagnosis of Peripheral Neuropathies, Cranial neuropathies, Radiculopathies, Neuromuscular junction effects, Myopathies, Nerve Injuries, Plexopathies and Anterior Horn cell diseases.
It is the only test that examines the function of the nervous tissue being examined and is directed by the clinical impression and the working diagnosis (customized for every patient

Its uses are as follows:

Nerve conduction studies- A method of measuring changes in a peripheral nerve by stimulating it electrically and recording the action potential generated.

Electromyography- A method of studying the electrical activity of a muscle, by placing a needle electrode within it and observing:
