memg/ncv (electromyogram ; nerve conduction velocity) study
This study is helpful for the physician in diagnosing diseases affecting the nerves in the upper and lower extremities.  These may indicate whether there is external pressure upon a nerve, such as in the case of a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.  The study may also indicate whether there is intrinsic metabolic disease affecting the nerve, as in the case of diabetes.  Emg/ncv studies add another piece of information to assist your doctor in arriving at a diagnosis.
