Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST)

Quantitative sensory testing is a subjective, psychophysical test developed to assess sensory nerve function and measures the level at which a subject reports sensing a physical stimulus (detection threshold) applied to the skin. It differs from standard electrodiagnostic testing using nerve conduction studies, evoked potentials, or electromyography, which objectively measures neurological function.
