Electrodiagnostic Studies (EDX) of Other Tests

Motor and sensory evoked potentials, peripheral nerve depolarization velocity investigations, and needle electromyograms are all examples of EDX research.Physicians board-certified in neurology or physical medicine and rehabilitation are encouraged to perform and interpret EDX in outpatient situations.

Electrodiagnostic investigations often work in conjunction with imaging techniques like CT, MRI, and/or myelography. Electrodiagnostic investigations represent a neurologic functioning state in contrast to X-ray, CT, and MRI which reflect structural changes.
