ECU diagnostic lab accredited

The electrodiagnostic lab at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University  has been accredited by the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine.

The accreditation is for five years. The lab is part of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the medical school.

Electrodiagnostic tests can help diagnose conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and other disorders caused by compressed nerves; nerve damage related to diabetes; nerve injury from accidents and trauma; Lou Gehrig’s Disease or ALS; neuropathies from diabetes and other medical conditions; Bell’s Palsy and other cranial nerve disorders.

These tests are also useful for finding the underlying causes of back pain, such as a herniated disc or pinched nerves.

Accreditation helps ensure patients receive quality medical care in a safe environment. The accreditation standards evaluate the diagnostic services and clinical operations including clinical staff qualifications and continuing education, facilities, equipment, protocols for performing studies, patient reports, and policies for ensuring the health and safety of patients.
