Neurodiagnostic Technology is an allied health specialty used for diagnosing and treating patients with neurological disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, coma, multiple sclerosis, and many others. A competent Neurodiagnostic Technologist has knowledge of the nervous system and knows how to properly operate many types of diagnostic instrumentation. Neurodiagnostic technologists are employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians’ offices, research centers and remote services.

The Neurodiagnostic Technology program provides theory, laboratory practice and clinical experience in electroencephalography (EEG) and in evoked potential (BAEP, VEP, SSEP) testing as well as an introduction to other neurological testing procedures. Testing procedures include polysomnograhy (PSG), nerve conduction studies (NCS), long-term monitoring (LTM) for epilepsy, intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) and transcranial doppler (TCD) studies. 

Program Emphasis:
The program exposes students to all aspects of the neurodiagnostic technology profession. Students must show safe, competent administration of neurodiagnostic procedures. 

Career Options:
Neurodiagnostic technologists are employed in a variety of settings including hospitals, outpatient clinics, physicians’ offices, university medical centers, research centers and remote services.

The program is currently seeking CAAHEP Accreditation so that upon completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to sit for the national credentialing board exam (ABRET - American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists)
