Abstract

Imaging of muscle and nerve has become increasingly useful and of promising value in the evaluation of patients with various neuromuscular disorders. These techniques include ultrasonography, radionuclide scanning, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. They have different applications, advantages, and disadvantages. This review assesses these imaging modalities and describes the findings in pathologic conditions. The usefulness of these methods in the evaluation of various neuromuscular diseases is discussed.
