Abstract [en]

Neurography and EMG are complementary techniques used in the diagnosis and monitoring of neuropathies. Both assess function of the peripheral nervous system and provide clinically useful information regarding the functional status of peripheral nerves. This information is not readily obtainable using biochemical, genetic or imaging techniques. I will discuss the role of these techniques in the diagnosis and management of neuropathies and some limitations of these techniques. These methods are routinely used in an EMG lab. These are most useful when used in conjunction with clinical examination to answer a well-defined clinical question. Reference values are required for interpretation of the data.
