Anatomic Localization for Needle EMG


  • Steve Geiringer, MD, Professor, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI

The new edition of this practical text presents a clear anatomic approach to locating the needle insertion site for EMG. Succinct descriptions are provided for 71 routinely tested muscles, and each is accompanied by a full-page drawing of the muscle and related anatomy. Many new cross-sectional drawings have been added to further delineate the anatomy. Guidelines have been expanded throughout to include more detail. There are also more pearls, additional tips on avoiding pitfalls, and anatomical and clinical descriptions. Teaching points have been expanded and replace the previous "notes" from the first edition. The text is in outline format and indicates peripheral and nerve root innervations and patient positioning.
