Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Studies
Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies are electrodiagnostic tests that detect diseases that affect the nerves and muscles. EMG measures electrical activity in muscles, comparing electrical signals from muscles when they are at rest with when they are active. Nerve conduction studies measure how fast nerves can conduct electrical signals and how well they are conducted.
At MGH, Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Studies can be performed at the Neuromuscular Diagnostic Center, at 165 Cambridge Street, Boston, 8th floor, 617-726-3644.
