"As in their previous editions, the authors successfully provide a comprehensive guide to performing electrodiagnostic studies. In addition, potential pitfalls of such studies are highlighted and example cases help readers to understand the diagnostic approach to complicated patients. New to this edition are the colorful cross-sectional anatomy illustrations that assist readers in proper needle insertion, online videos of EMG waveforms, and updated information on the advances in the field of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine since the 2005 edition. As an added bonus, the book is electronically available and provides a mobile resource for busy clinicians and tech-savvy electromyographers.
This is a valuable resource for anyone embarking on a career in neurophysiology and is a must-have in the EMG lab. The material is well organized with handy tables and wonderful illustrations. Whether reading it from cover to cover or using it as a quick reference, readers will be pleased. " - Elizabeth Ann Mauricio, MD(Mayo Clinic Flordia) Doody 4 stars!
"This is the much-awaited edition of what has become a standard textbook. The 2 authors are prominent figures in the field of neuromuscular medicine and have been active in resident and fellow education for many years at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
[...] Although I have read the book at least twice, I often find myself referring to the chapters in [Section 6: Clinical-Electrophysiological Complications] while doing complicated studies. [...] The case examples at the end of the chapters are from the authors' experience. For a reader, the interactive discussion of the cases is very helpful in interpreting one's own cases.[...]
Some welcome new features of this edition are its color images and cross-sectional views of muscles in the EMG section. Moreover, the book is now accessible online online for quick reference. Readers can also listen to EMG sounds online instead of installing a CD, which was not always successful with the second edition.
This is a very well-organized and clearly written book. I would recommend this book to all residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows as well as anyone who interprets nerve conduction studies and performs EMGs."

The first several chapters provide a very clear, understandable explanation of the fundamentals of electrodiagnostic testing. The remainder of the text includes an excellent EMG/NCS atlas, and more detailed discussion of the clinical/electrophysiological features of specific syndromes (i.e. focal neuropathies, polyneuropathy, myopathy, etc).
The third edition of this book is a wonderful update. The EMG atlas now includes cross-sectional images of the muscles, which I have found to be very useful. I could not give this book a higher recommendation.
The book is structured in a way that makes sense. First, fundamental concepts of nerve conduction studies and electromyography (EMG) are clearly conveyed with effective visual aids. Material is then synthesized in a clinical-electrophysiologic correlations section. Organized by condition, such as ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, the chapters within this section discuss relevant anatomy, clinical presentations, etiologies, differential diagnoses, and electrophysiologic evaluations with recommended approaches and expected findings. Illustrative cases at the end of chapters emphasize key lessons and serve as useful self-assessments. Suggested readings are also shared. The authors thereby invite readers to actively participate, practice, and further explore critical ideas.
However, the book is more than instructive; it's insightful. Drs. Preston and Shapiro draw on years of professional experience to provide readers with practical tools including a way to introduce testing to patients, tips for performing technically sound studies, and guidance for avoiding pitfalls.Read more ›
