Curriculum

What is Neurodiagnostic Technology

Neurodiagnostic Technology (NDT) is the medical diagnostic field devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. Neurodiagnostic Technologists possess the knowledge, skills, and attributes to obtain interpretable recordings of patients’ nervous system function. They work in collaboration with medical researchers, clinicians, physicians, and other health professionals.


What Role Does a Neurodiagnostic Technologist Perform

Neurodiagnostic Technologists can be involved in one or more of the following diagnostic procedures:

  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Evoked Potential (EP)
  • Long-term Monitoring (LTM)
  • Polysomnography (PSG)
  • Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
  • Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM).

The Technologist takes the medical history; documents the clinical condition of patients; understands and employs the optimal use of EEG, EP, PSG, and NCS equipment; and applies adequate recording electrodes. Among other duties, the Neurodiagnostic Technologist also understands the interface between EEG, EP, PSG, and NCS equipment and other electrophysiological devices and procedures; recognizes and understands EEG/EP/NCS/sleep activity displayed; manages medical emergencies in the laboratory; and prepares a descriptive report of recorded activity for the interpreting physician.

The responsibilities of the Technologist may also include laboratory management and the supervision of Neurodiagnostic Technologists.


What Traits Can Make a Neurodiagnostic Technologist

Considerable individual initiative, reasoning skill, and sound judgment are all expected of the Neurodiagnostic professional. Neurodiagnostic Technology personnel work primarily in neurology-related departments of hospitals, but many also work in clinics and the private offices of neurologists and neurosurgeons.

As a neurodiagnostic technologist, you can serve a vital role in health care. Concorde helps comprehensively equip you for this broad job scope through hands-on skills training and real-world clinical experiences.
