Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) is an electrical test that is used to determine the adequacy of the conduction of the nerve impulse. This is used to detect nerve injury.
Nerve conduction velocity studies are used to measure the speed of nerve signal conduction. By testing the Motor Nerve, Sensory Nerve and the H-Reflex, we can evaluate the following: Diabetic Neuropathy, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Peroneal Entrapment, Tibial Neuropathy, Entrapment Sural, and Plantar Nerve Neuropathy.
NCV are tests you may order to measure nerve conduction and muscle action potential. These tests are performed to determine if symptoms (e.g. sciatica, weakness) are caused by a nerve or muscle disorder.
We use very advanced portable equipment made by Cadwell to diagnose your patients.
