Penn Center for Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Diagnosis and Evaluation

The Penn Center for Peripheral Nerve Disorders' multidisciplinary team uses the latest advances in diagnosis and evaluation, including state-of-the-art imaging studies in neuroradiology as well as electrodiagnostic studies performed by the neuromuscular division within Penn Neurology.

The center's state of the art evaluation and diagnostic techniques include:

  • MRI, CT and ultrasound imaging of peripheral nerve injuries, entrapments and tumors.
  • Leading electrodiagnostic studies (EMG, NCV)
  • Intraoperative nerve monitoring including nerve action potentials (NAPs), compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs), somatosensory-evoked potentials (SSEPs), motor-evoked potentials (MEPs)
