EMG Studies

The new Neurodiagnostics and Sleep Center at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield offers electromyography (EMG) and other neurodiagnostic and respiratory tests, such as electroencephalograms, multiple sleep latency testing, oxygen titration, and therapeutic treatments with CPAP/BIPAP and oxygen.

 

The expanded EMG laboratory suite accommodates electrodiagnostic evaluations of a variety of neuromuscular disorders, including complex diseases such as muscular dystrophy, myopathies, myasthenia gravis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and other neuromuscular diseases. The EMG laboratory staff also provides needle muscle biopsies, electrodiagnostic assessment of patients with urinary and rectal incontinence, and treatment of movement disorders with botulinum toxin.
