Electromyographic (EMG) testing and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) testing work hand-in-hand to give patients the most accurate diagnosis for neuromuscular conditions. The tests are low-risk but high-reward and require a high level of training to be done effectively. Led by a neurologist who is fellowship-trained in neuromuscular care, Boys Town Pediatric Muscle and Weakness Clinic has the capability to provide these tests.
