CoxHealth Neurodiagnostic Lab
Your personality is unique. So are your abilities—and the nerve pathways to your body.
Mapping these neurological pathways is complicated and difficult but important to the success of any surgical or neurological treatment.
The CoxHealth Neurodiagnostic Lab was one of the first ABRET-credentialed labs in Missouri. Your care team has more than 160 years of combined clinical neurodiagnostic experience in key services:
- Neonatal, pediatric and adult EEG testing
- Intraoperative monitoring
- Nerve conduction and velocity and EMG studies
- Evoked potentials
- Long-term epilepsy monitoring

There are several reasons why your doctor might order an EEG. It’s the most useful and important test in confirming a diagnosis of epilepsy, and may be done to see what types of seizures are occurring.
During some surgeries or procedures, a trained technologist will monitor your nervous system in "real time", which has been shown to reduce paralysis, muscle weakness, hearing loss and other symptoms following surgery.
