The Department of Clinical Neurophysiology performs approximately 7500 neurophysiological examinations annually with main focus on the diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders and epilepsy.
Quantitative electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies using near-nerve needle technique are routinely used in the examination of patients with neuromuscular disorders. In addition, ultrasonography and several specialised neurophysiological techniques including single fibre EMG, motor unit number estimation (MUNE), laser evoked potentials (LEPs) and tests of the autonomic nervous system are used to aid diagnosis and prognosis. A video demonstration of quantitative emg and quantitative interference pattern analysis (peak-ratio) can be seen here:
