Description

Diagnostic ultrasound is being used with increasing frequency to assist in diagnosing and gathering additional information about focal mononeuropathies and neuromuscular disorders. It is also being used more frequently for interventions for the diagnoses found. As this becomes more common, the question of when to use ultrasound in the EMG lab becomes more relevant and difficult to answer. This session will discuss the most helpful uses of ultrasound in the EMG labs for common focal mononeuropathies, traumatic neuropathies, neuromuscular disorders and in treating focal mononeuropathies.

Learning Objectives

  • To review the rationale, evidence and indications for using ultrasound as a complement to EMG/NCV in the assessment of focal mononeuropathies.
  • To review the rationale, evidence and indications for using ultrasound as a complement to EMG/NCV in the assessment of traumatic neuropathies.
  • To review the rationale, evidence and indications for using ultrasound as a complement to EMG/NCV in the assessment of neuromuscular disorders.
