Ultrasound and Electrodiagnosis (EMG) of the Median Nerve

Ultrasound and Electrodiagnosis (EMG) of the Median Nerve

Ultrasound and Electrodiagnosis (EMG) of the Median Nerve training video is designed to provide a comprehensive approach to the use of ultrasound for the assessment of the median nerve and carpal tunnel. The presentation is structured to review the nerve anatomy, clinical assessment, the relative value and technical approach of routine electrophysiologic techniques, scanning techniques, and image optimization with ultrasound. In addition, the clinical basis for utilizing ultrasound for assessment of both normal / abnormal sonographic characteristics of the nerves, muscles, and other related anatomy is included.

Topics include:

  • Anatomy, Scan Techniques and Pathology of the Median Nerve and Carpal Tunnel
  • Goals of the Electrodiagnostic Examination for Carpal Tunnel Entrapment
  • Cross Sectional Area Nerve Measurements
  • Assessment for Anatomic Variants
  • Neovascularization in Chronic Conditions
  • Ultrasound Evaluation of Post-surgical Complications


Objectives: After viewing the activity, the participant should be able to:

  • State clinical indications for ultrasound of the median nerve.
  • List routine electrodiagnostic techniques for assessment of the median nerve.
  • Recognize sonographic appearance of the median nerve anatomy.
  • List ultrasound examination protocols and scan techniques for evaluation of the median nerve including post-surgical assessment.
  • Identify commonly seen median nerve pathology recognized with ultrasound and apply diagnostic criteria for accurate diagnosis.
