My previous article was the first in a series focusing on understanding the terminology in diagnostic reports, and the limitations and advantages of certain diagnostic tests. The first article focused on X-ray and MRI testing. This will focus on electromyography, otherwise known as EMG testing.

The first test is an electromyography (EMG), which checks the health of the muscles and the nerves that control the muscles. The second test is a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test to see how fast electrical signals move through a nerve.
