  Orthopedic surgeons utilize sNCT/CPT studies to assess sensory nerve functional integrity associated with injuries resulting in sensory dysfunction (e.g. radiculopathies and focal/compressive nerve injuries). The sNCT/CPT evaluation is conducted to determine the severity of clinically detected sensory impairments and assist in decisions regarding surgical intervention. A new sNCT/CPT evaluation is only necessary if new sensory impairments develop that require an objective quantitative neuroselective evaluation.  Related publications are cited on the web page Selected Neurometer® CPT Research Publications Grouped by Topic and Specialty.
