Through the EDX case studies, lesion localization and characterization are demonstrated and discussed step-by-step using a floating text box that tracks the findings for each case. Each case begins with the clinical features, which dictate the initial EDX studies performed. The results of those studies drive the next round of testing, which continues until the abnormality has been localized and characterized and a diagnosis is made. In this manner the dynamic nature of electrodiagnostic testing and process of sequential study analysis is reinforced in the cases, just as it would be in the EMG laboratory.
Authored by two leading experts in neurology and electrodiagnostic medicine, all aspects of lesion localization and characterization are extensively covered, including calculations of lesion severity for demyelinating conduction block and axon loss lesions and calculations of various types of motor unit action potential recruitment frequencies. The book features a large number of anatomical drawings, charts, and EDX images in order to illustrate the skills of lesion localization and characterization comprehensively. By conveying the "cognitive approach" to EDX medicine, EMG Lesion Localization and Characterization merges clinical knowledge with real-life cases to better instruct residents, fellows, technicians, and neuromuscular providers in the field of electrodiagnostic medicine.
