What is an MRI?
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is commonly warranted when there’s a need to view detailed images of soft tissues, such as cartilage and ligaments. MRI machines use a powerful magnet combined with radio waves and computer technology to provide detailed images that help diagnosis and create treatment strategy for a wide variety of conditions. An MRI is non-invasive and does not emit radiation. For more details please call 404-596-5670
I was told I need an EMG, but no one has reached out to schedule, what should I do?
What is an EMG?
Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) are special tests used to detect neuromuscular disorders. They are commonly ordered if you are experiencing pain, tingling, weakness or numbness. An EMG is a test that allows your physician to record the electrical activity of muscles. A NCS is a non-invasive study that allows your physician to evaluate the speed and intensity of electrical signals that travel through nerves and the time it takes muscles to respond to these signals. The results of these tests will help your physician decide what is causing your symptoms and how they can be treated. For more details please call 404-596-5670
