electroneuromyography

 [e-lek″tro-noor″o-mi-og´rah-fe]
electromyography in which the nerve of the muscle under study is stimulated by application of an electric current.

e·lec·tro·di·ag·no·sis

(ē-lek'trō-dī'ag-nō'sis),
1. The use of electronic devices for diagnostic purposes.
2. By convention, the studies performed in the EMG laboratory, that is, nerve conduction studies and needle electrode examination (EMG proper). Synonym(s): electroneurography

electroneuromyography

[ilek′trōnoo͡r′ōmī·og′rəfē]
Etymology: Gk, elektron + neuron, nerve, mys, muscle, graphein, to record
a procedure for testing and recording neuromuscular activity by electric stimulation of nerves. Needle electrodes are inserted into any skeletal muscle being studied, electric current is applied to the electrodes, and neuromuscular functions are observed and recorded by means of instruments, such as a cathode-ray oscilloscope and an appropriate recording device. The procedure is helpful in the study of neuromuscular conduction, the extent of nerve lesions, and reflex responses. Compare nerve conduction test. See also electromyogram.

e·lec·tro·neu·ro·my·og·ra·phy

(ĕ-lek'trō-nūr'ō-mī-og'ră-fē)
A method of measuring changes in a peripheral nerve by combining electromyography of a muscle with electrical stimulation of the nerve trunk carrying fibers to and from the muscle.

electroneuromyography

electromyography in which the nerve of the muscle under study is stimulated by application of an electric current.
