Neurodiagnostic Technician (NDT)

Program Description

A Neurodiagnostic Technologist (NDT) is a skilled Allied Health professional who records electrical activity arising from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, somatosensory or motor nerve systems using a variety of techniques and instruments.  The most common neurodiagnostic procedures include:

By recording electrical patterns throughout these systems, ND technologists provide valuable data that a physician will use to diagnose and treat conditions such as neuromuscular disorders, brain tumors, seizure disorders, strokes and degenerative brain disease.

Career Opportunities

ND technologists work with patients of all ages in a variety of settings including: hospitals, outpatient clinics, physician offices, epilepsy monitoring units, operating rooms, and research facilities. Qualified NDTs are in demand. According to the The Neurodiagnostic Society (ASET) salary survey, median income for technologists in their first year after graduation is $40K. This salary can rise with time and experience to $55K+.

Several routes exist for a Technologist to become nationally registered in EEG, Evoked Potentials, Long-Term monitoring, Nerve Conduction Studies, and Intraoperative Neuromonitoring. Learn more online at www.abret.org and www.aset.org.
