Electromyography (EMG or myogram) and Nerve conduction Study (NCS) are neurodiagnostic tests used to assess the health and function of the muscles and the nerves that control the muscles. It can be used to determine whether muscle weakness and loss of muscle strength are caused by a muscle injury or by an underlying neurological disorder.
