The electroneuromyography (EMG) is a set of techniques for functional study of peripheral nerve conduction, neuromuscular transmission and muscular activity.

The research activity at the CHU de Liège in the EMG sector is primarily clinical. It aims at developing new tools to both improve diagnostic efficiency and to increase functional exploration field. The following techniques are being developed:

  • Evoked potentials (EP) laser stimulation to improve the functional exploration of small fiber neuropathies (diabetes, amyloidosis, etc) and neuropathic pain
  • Triple nerve stimulation (cortical magnetic stimulation and two peripheral electrical stimulation) to expose the proximal conduction blocks within some dysimmune neuropathies and to quantify the central motor impairment in patients with multiple sclerosis
  • Nerve ultrasound (coupled with EMG) applied to entrapment neuropathy (carpal tunnel syndrome and others), as well as dysimmune neuropathies
