Testing Procedures & Terminology
This course introduces learners to the field of Neurodiagnostic Technology by providing descriptions of Neurodiagnostic testing procedures and describing the profession’s Scope of Practice. The Scope of Practice specifies the role of ND technologists as members of the health care team and outlines core responsibilities. The terminology presented in this course is meant to provide a solid foundation for building a medical vocabulary and includes assignments and handouts for general terms plus those related to patient charting, signs, symptoms, accepted abbreviations, infection control, neurological diseases, and other types of diagnostic testing. Specific terms used to describe EEG waveforms and patterns will also be a major focus.
