Neuromuscular Disorders

Technology


To aid in the diagnosis of neuromuscular disease, Albany Med has a comprehensive clinical neurophysiology laboratory. The peripheral electrodiagnostic laboratories contain state-of-the-art EMG/nerve conduction velocity equipment. Because Albany Med is on the cutting-edge of many neuromuscular treatments, our physicians oversee more than 700 studies using this equipment  annually at Albany Med. There is also an active intra-operative monitoring program for select neurosurgical procedures. Muscle biopsy is also performed and the muscle is evaluated with state-of-the-art histochemical assessments.
