A neurodiagnostic technologist performs procedures including electroencephalograms (EEG), evoked potentials (EP), polysomnograms (PSG or sleep studies), nerve conduction studies (NCS), and long term monitoring. All of these procedures can help in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological problems ranging from common headaches, head and spinal injuries as sometimes seen in athletes, seizures, sleep disorders, strokes and unexplained comas.
Neurodiagnostic technologists work in hospitals, clinics and doctors offices. More experienced technologists may work in the operating room. With the continued rapid advances in technology some technologists also find challenging positions in the world of research, as well as within the medical instrument industry.
