The Neurodiagnostic Technologist program prepares you, under the supervision of a physician, to study and record electrical activity in the brain and nervous system for purposes of patient monitoring and supporting diagnoses in collaboration with the electroencephalographer. You’ll learn attributes and skills to obtain interpretable recordings of patients' nervous system function. You’ll become skilled in the following areas: communicating with patients, family and other healthcare personnel; taking and abstracting histories; applying adequate recording electrodes and using electroencephalography (EEG), evoked potential (EP), nerve conduction studies (NCS) and polysomnography (PSG) techniques; documenting the clinical condition of patients; and understanding and employing the optimal use of EEG, EP, NCS and PSG equipment, and data recording and documentation.
