Objectives

  1. Review the fundamentals and basis of EDX medicine techniques.
  2. Determine the best electrophysiologic tests for evaluating peripheral neuropathies and other NM conditions.
  3. Review detailed peripheral nerve, MSK, and other relevant anatomy of the upper and lower limbs, including appearance on US.
  4. Observe, practice and improve skills with fundamental and advanced techniques in electrophysiology, MSK and NM US, and chemodenervation.
  5. Review and practice EMG waveform identification.
  6. Learn image optimization with high frequency US.
  7. Learn the clinical value of high frequency US with basic and complex MSK and NM conditions.
  8. Evaluate and improve report writing.
  9. Review and practice appropriate muscle selection for chemodenervation.
  10. Review challenging cases incorporating both EDX and US.
  11. Review advancements in technology for assessing MSK and NM disorders.
