Neuromuscular ultrasound in clinical practice: A review.
Neuromuscular ultrasound (NMUS) is becoming a standard element in the evaluation of peripheral nerve and muscle disease. When obtained simultaneously to electrodiagnostic studies, it provides dynamic, structural information that can refine a diagnosis or identify a structural etiology. NMUS can improve patient care for those with mononeuropathies, polyneuropathy, motor neuron disease and muscle disorders. In this article, we present a practical guide to the basics of NMUS and its clinical application. Basic ultrasound physics, scanning techniques and clinical applications are reviewed, along with current challenges.
