Clinical Neurophysiology

Clinical Neurophysiology is an allied speciality which involves diagnosing of wide range of conditions affecting central and peripheral nervous system. It is concerned with the testing of electrical function of the brain, spinal cord and nerves in the limbs and muscles.

  • EEG (Adults and Children ) - Records of brain activity using multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. Useful in classifying and diagnosing epilepsy, brain dysfunction etc.
  • Nerve conduction studies - Assesses the function of peripheral nerves.
  • Electromyography - Useful for diagnosing muscle, nerve and nerve cell related problems.
  • Video telemetry - This specialized study is essential for epileptic workup. The need for complete evaluation of interictal and ictal EEG abnormal ties and matching with clinical semiology and the focal lesion is absolutely essential for the success of the epilepsy surgery.
  • Evoked Essentials - It is used to test central pathways. eg : Multiple Sclerosis.
  • Repetitive Stimulation Studies and Single fibre EMG - Essential for diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis which is a neuromuscular junction transmission dysfunction
  • Electrocorticography (ECOG ) - Electrophysiological monitoring that uses electrodes placed directly on the exposed surface of the brain to record electrical activity from the cerebral cortex during epilepsy surgeries. Useful for identification of lesion and effective resection.

Neurophysiology tests are useful in patient management in the field of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Rheumatology, Plastic Surgery and ICU.
