Evaluating the cost-effectiveness of neuromuscular ultrasound in focal neuropathies

Takeaway

  • From a societal perspective, neuromuscular ultrasound (NMUS) is a cost-effective diagnostic technique of focal neuropathy evaluation when combined with electrodiagnostic testing.

Why this matters

  • The use of NMUS in the evaluation of focal neuropathies is sensitive, reliable, specific and has been demonstrated to improve clinical outcomes after 6 months of follow-up.
