How long does it take to perform the sNCT/CPT procedure?
The average time needed to perform a fully automated CPT
evaluation (p<0.004) at any single site test site is approximately 8-10 minutes.
The ranged R-CPT measure is a faster faster measure, requiring
approximately 2-3 minutes per site (p<0.05). The R-CPT measure is
site specific. Presently, normative values exist to permit R-CPT
measures to be obtained from 34 different body sites. Each
frequency dependent measure obtained provides a unique neurodiagnostic
profile from each of the three major sub-populations of sensory nerve fibers comprising
the typical sensory nerve.
All other electrodiagnostic procedures measure only a single subpopulation of fibers -
usually the large myelinated fibers which comprise approximately10% of a
sensory nerve. A typical evaluation may involve testing 2 to 6 sites (1
to 3 sites bilaterally) making the total time for a test approximately
20 to 60 minutes. Other measures that may be obtained such as Pain
Tolerance Threshold (PTT) or allodynia evaluation typically require less than two minutes.
