Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Test
A Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Test is an electrodiagnostic procedure that measures how well a nerve works and helps to specify the site of nerve compression. Nerves carry messages between the brain and body. Many conditions, such as tissue swelling, injury, and disease, can put pressure on a nerve and impair its ability to function. Doctors use nerve conduction velocity tests to help diagnose nerve problems and plan treatments.
