Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic tool that evaluates muscle or nerve problems. It uses surface electrodes to assess the ability of motor neurons (the nerve cells that control your muscles) to transmit electrical signals. It also uses needle ...
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is the liquid that cushions and protects your brain and spinal cord. The CSF protein test is used to determine if there is too much protein in your CSF. It can also be used to detect protein levels that are too low.
A lumbar puncture is a medical procedure usually performed to obtain a sample of cerebrospinal fluid. The procedure is sometimes referred to as a spinal tap.
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis is a way of looking for conditions that affect the brain and spine. It is a series of laboratory tests performed on a sample of CSF. CSF is the clear fluid that cushions and delivers nutrients to the central nerv...
A CSF smear is part of a series of laboratory tests performed on samples of a patient’s cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). A CSF smear is often combined with a CSF Gram stain to diagnose certain infectious diseases of the central nervous system. T...
An electrocardiogram (also known as an ECG or EKG) is a simple, painless test that measures your heart's electrical activity. Every heartbeat is triggered by an electrical signal that starts at the top of your heart and travels to the bottom. Hear...
A nerve biopsy is a testing procedure in which a small sample of a nerve is removed from your body and examined in a laboratory. Your doctor may request a nerve biopsy if you...
