Successfully correlate electrodiagnostic findings and neuromuscular ultrasound with key clinical findings with Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders, 4th Edition. This popular text is the go-to resource for clinicians at all levels of experience who have an interest in neuromuscular medicine, including those studying for the AANEM board exam. An easy-to-read writing style, abundant case studies, and learning features online help you master the electrodiagnostic evaluation and improve safety and accuracy.


Key Features
  • Helps you diagnose neuromuscular disorders more quickly and accurately, and correlate electromyographic and clinical findings.
  • Explains complex subject matter in an easy-to-understand, user-friendly manner.
  • Includes dozens of detailed, cross-sectional anatomy drawings to ensure correct EMG needle placement and avoid neurovascular injuries.
  • Features new chapters on Neuromuscular Ultrasound, as well as incorporating neuromuscular ultrasound in the evaluation of clinical neuromuscular disorders along with electrodiagnostic studies in many of the clinical chapters.
  • Provides up-to-date information on iatrogenic complications of electrodiagnostic studies and newly defined genetic neuromuscular conditions.
  • Includes online access to more than 70 videos that allow you to see and hear the EMG waveforms discussed in the text, as well as a convenient "Test Your Knowledge" module.
  • Enhanced eBook version included with purchase. Your enhanced eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, and references from the book on a variety of devices.

Published Reviews

"This book perfectly fulfills its purpose for its target audience. It is easy to read and to the point and covers all the topics one needs to know to learn and practice neurophysiology testing in the field of neuromuscular medicine.Moreover, it is excellent reference for EMG and clinical neurophysiology fellows during their training, as well as for neurology residents on their EMG/NCS rotation."
