Appendix J—Electrodiagnostic Medicine Listing of Sensory, Motor, and Mixed Nerves
The following table provides a reasonable maximum number of studies performed per diagnostic category
necessary for a physician to arrive at a diagnosis in 90% of patients with that final diagnosis. The
numbers in each column represent the number of studies recommended. The appropriate number of
studies to be performed is based upon the physician’s discretion.
