How Much Does a Nerve Conduction Test Cost?

A nerve conduction test is performed as a way to evaluate the ability of electrical conduction of the motor and sensory nerves in the human body.  Basically, it measures how fast the nerves can send an electrical signal.  This test is normally performed when the symptoms of numbness, tingling and burning sensations in the arms and the legs are experienced, and oftentimes, this test will be recommended if the doctor suspects you have carpal tunnel, nerve abnormalities, a nerve injury, Guillain-Barre Syndrome or myasthenia.

The nerve conduction study, commonly conducted alongside an EMG test, consists of different components which include Motor NCS, Sensory NCS, an F-wave study, and H-reflex study.

The cost of a nerve conduction test will depend on the geographical location, the medical clinic performing the procedure and type of tests being performed.
