Nerve Conduction Study in progress in our clinic

 

NEUROPHYSIOLOGY SERVICES

MOST SERVICES PERFORMED ARE BULK BILLED

Nerve conduction Studies, by way of evaluating disorders of peripheral nerves and/or muscles. Typical disorders of this type include carpal tunnel entrapment, peripheral neuropathy, peripheral-nerve injuries and muscular dystrophies.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Neuromuscular Disorders

Electroencephalograms (EEG’s) record brain waves, and are used especially for assessing patients with epilepsy or so-called “fits, faints and funny turns”

  • OUR (PREFERRED) STANDARD 3-HOUR EEG IS FULLY BULK BILLED

  • EEG’S (Electroenchphalograms) PRIVATE STUDIES

AMA recommended fee of $355 is reduced to $180 with a Medicare rebate of $104.65


 

Nerve Conduction with EMG charged at AMA recommended fees

Nerve-conduction studies (NCS) and electromyography (EMG) are two distinctly separate neurodiagnostic procedures. Some referrals such as those preceding complex surgery can require both EMG and NCS studies to be performed, according to the preferences of the referring surgeons. These studies require the attendance of both a neuroscientist and a neurologist and require more time to be performed, analysed and reported, compared to standard studies. We therefore do not bulk-bill these particular studies.

What is Neurology

Neurology is a medical speciality which deals with physical disorders affecting the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. Neurologists mostly deal with diseases where there is a physical disturbance of the structure of nerve tissue.

Since the brain and nervous system control a great number of functions in the body, the subject of Neurology is relevant to a wide range of diseases. Those affecting the brain include headaches, epilepsy, strokes, multiple sclerosis, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

Neurologists are also often involved in assessing patients with problems affecting the spine, and with assessing and treating various types of pain.
