NDT (Neurodiagnostic Technologists) record and study the science of the electrical activity of the brain and spinal cord. Working with both physicians and patients, NDT technologists develop a good rapport with patients, comforting them during procedures. They understand neurophysiology and recognize normal and abnormal electrical activity.
NDT technologists are responsible for preparing patients for procedures such as Electroencephalograms (EEG), Evoked Potentials (EP), and Intraoperative Monitoring (IOM). NDT Technologists obtain medical histories of patients, record electrical potentials, calculate results of tests, maintain medical equipment, and may work with specific treatments.
