NCV/EMG Service

NERVE CONDUCTION VELOCITY / ELECTROMYOGRAPHY

TNAI’s diagnostic NCV/EMG testing is an assessment of the functional integrity of both proximal and distal segments of peripheral nerves. The test assists in both localizing the origin of nerve lesions and neurological symptoms of unknown etiology and determining the stage of pathology with respect to time.

What to Expect

After submitting a referral form and patient demographics to TNAI, our administrative team will verify benefits and contact the patient for scheduling at your location or one of our partnering testing facilities according to the pre-determined office availability.

TNAI will notify your staff one day prior to the scheduled appointment.

A certified TNAI technician will arrive approximately 15-30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time to set up equipment and establish real-time data and video transmission with a board-certified neurologist.

A comprehensive NCV/EMG report generated by a board certified neurologist will arrive at your office within 4-5 days after the examination is performed.
All billing is performed by TNAI’s certified billing and collections associates.
