Neurodiagnostic Topics

James Watt has been an active member in the field of neurodiagnostics for many years and continues to develop a wide ranges of topics that he is knowledgeable about and has developed talks available for presentation at conferences, company/hospital training sessions and other venues.

ABRET’s Certificate of Neurophysiological Monitoring (CNIM) Board Preparation Course

James is well known for his engaging presentation of IONM fundamentals, modality basics, and surgery specific knowledge.  He has aided numerous technologists in preparing to sit for their CNIM exam.  His approach is to ensure that technologists clearly understand fundamental concepts such as filters, differential amplifiers, modality specific skills, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, troubleshooting, using the IONM instrument, data assessment, patient evaluation, documentation, and other important topics necessary to pass the CNIM exam and to function as a quality Neuromonitoring technologist.
