The Electromyography (EMG) Laboratory specializes in electrodiagnostic examinations that evaluate, monitor, diagnose, and exclude disorders of the peripheral nervous system. Unlike imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT), electrophysiological measures from peripheral nerves and/or muscles bestow information about their function. As electrodiagnostic studies are an extension of the patient’s clinical history and physical examination, each test session is designed and interpreted in parallel with that information. Consequently, our team is able to provide high-level patient care and diagnostic support to referring physicians and patients.
Beside the diagnostic services it offers to both the public and private health sectors, the EMG Laboratory continuously runs independent and collaborative research projects, and participates in hosting pre/medical students, post/graduate students, residents and fellows of Neurology and Psychiatry.
