Neurodiagnostic tests, also called neurodiagnostics, are done when a patient’s illness or condition is thought to be based in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Signs of nervous system disorders include the following:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Hearing and vision changes
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Seizures
  • Strokes
  • Weakness

There are two types of neurodiagnostic testing: imaging tests or scans (e.g., x-ray, CT scan, MRI scan, PET scan) and electrical impulse detection (e.g., EEG, EMG). Neurodiagnostic testing may be conducted as part of a neurological exam.
