Added value of Neuromuscular Ultrasound in clinical neurophysiologic everyday practice

Aktivitet: Tale eller præsentation - typerForedrag og mundtlige bidrag


High-resolution ultrasound of the nerves and muscles has been shown to have
a considerable supplementary value to the neurophysiological diagnosis. With
the ultrasound probe at hand, the neurophysiologist is equipped with a
powerful tool to supplement his/her functional diagnosis with a structural
insight in the nerve pathology. With the ultrasound probe at hand, the EMG
needle placement is not blindly inserted, and deep muscles can be safely
examined. Ultrasound can outperform EMG in detecting fasciculations and can
offer help to examine brachial plexopathies, inflammatory neuropathies etc.
In this teaching course we will aim to provide the participants with a
overview over the practical use and added value of neuromuscular ultrasound.
The workshop will focus on latest research on the supplementary role of the neuromuscular ultrasound (NMU) in the daily clinic with emphasis on establishing normal material, acquiring ultrasound practical knowledge
and understanding the role of ultrasound in the daily use of the department. This will be done by presenting evidence, abundance of cases and reviews of NMU praxis in three /more departments of Clinical Neurophysiology in Europe. There will moreover be a hands-on session with demonstration of NMU of upper and lower extremities nerves and plexus brachialis.
