We offer a range of tests with state of the art equipment. We'll fit our tests to your needs.
Our main department is at St Thomas' Hospital. We also run some adult clinics at Guy's Hospital.
- electroencephalograms (EEG)
- nerve conduction studies (NCS), where we place stickers on your skin and deliver small stimulations to active your nerves with a probe
- electromyography (EMG), where we insert a small needle through your skin into your muscle to measure the electrical activity of your muscles
- somatosensory evoked potential tests (SSEP), where we place stick-on electrodes along your arms, legs, back, neck and head and use a probe to release tiny electric pulses which stimulate your nerves
- visual evoked potential tests (VEP), where we place sensors on your scalp and/or lower eyelid and deliver a visual stimuli
- central motor conduction time (CMCT), where we deliver stimulation on your scalp and record the response from some muscles
All of the above tests for our young patients, except EEGs, take place at St Thomas' Hospital. Children's EEGs are held at Evelina London Children's Hospital.
Research and clinical trials
Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
