About this book

Neuromuscular imaging has increasingly become an important tool in the detection and diagnosis of inherited and acquired neuromuscular disease. This book is a groundbreaking radiological and neurological overview of current methods and applications of imaging—including aspects of neuroimaging and musculoskeletal imaging—in patients with inherited, metabolic, and inflammatory muscle diseases. Imaging features are discussed in the context of clincial presentation, histopathology, therapeutic options and differential diagnosis. World leading expert contributors give a comprehensive and didactic review of neuromuscular disorders and available imaging modalities, each illustrated with numerous figures. Topics discussed include:

-Modalities such as ultrasound, CT and MRI

-Muscle anatomy and physiology

-Clinical applications in hereditary and acquired myopathies

-Clinical applications in motor neuron disorders and peripheral nerve imaging
