The nerve conduction test (NCV) and electromyography (EMG) needle test, called the NCV/EMG test, is an ultrasonographic test used to diagnose muscle and peripheral nerve diseases.
This is an important ancillary test which is used to identify important factors of motor and sensory disturbances in the limbs, contraction or muscle weakness, paralysis, and pain. The NCV and EMG tests are separate tests but it is sometimes necessary to use both of them during diagnosis.
Ultrasonographic EMG is used to record and evaluate the electrical activity of the muscle. Using the test, it is possible to diagnose congenital or acquired muscle diseases, such as various types of myopathy or myositis, and diseases disrupting the "nerve - muscle" connection, such as myasthenia gravis.
