Electromyography involves testing the electrical activity in the nervous system. Often, EMG testing is performed with another test that measures the conducting function of nerves.
The EEG is used in the evaluation of brain disorders. Most commonly it is used to show the type and location of the activity in the brain during a seizure. It also is used to evaluate people who are having problems associated with brain function.
Carotid Doppler Ultrasound is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the large carotid arteries that supply blood to the brain.
