Here are answers to some of the questions you may have about your experiences at the Neurodiagnostic Technology Institute.
Neurodiagnostic Technology is a broad term used to describe several categories of neurological testing. It includes Electroencephalography, Long Term Monitoring (LTM), Polysomnography (PSG), Evoked Potentials (EP), Intraoperative Monitoring (IOM), and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS).
"EEG" is an abbreviation for the term Electroencephalography which is the study of electrical activity within the brain. Electroencephalography is of Greek origin and literally means:
Electro = electric
Encephalo = brain
Graph = writing
However, it is commonly used to refer to the actual brainwave recording or a neurodiagnostic technology group or department. Example: "Call EEG to get an EEG on this patient."
The nervous system functions when one nerve cell successfully communicates a message to another nerve cell. These messages carry electrical charges which can be measured and recorded by special equipment connected to electrodes placed on the scalp.
According to the O*NET Online Summary Report for Neurodiagnostic Technologists, neurodiagnostic technology has been categorized as a field that “is expected to grow rapidly.” With a projected growth rate of over eight percent (8%), it has been estimated that almost 28,000 job openings will be created before 2029. This is remarkable growth when you consider that the Department of Labor has forecasted overall job growth to be at eleven percent (11%).
