INTRODUCTION Continuous EEG (cEEG) monitoring is used in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting to detect seizures, especially nonconvulsive seizures and status epilepticus. The utility and impact of such monitoring in non-ICU patients are largely unknown. METHODS Hospitalized patients who were not in an ICU and underwent cEEG monitoring in the first half(More)
INTRODUCTION At our institution, core muscle biopsies are performed on muscles selected using electromyography (EMG). Ultrasound (US) guidance is not used routinely. The aim of this study was to determine if US guidance of EMG selected muscles would increase the diagnostic yield of the biopsy as compared to the current practice standards. METHODS Two(More)
Peripheral nerve injury can be reconstructed using composite polymer nerve autografts, but the sonographic appearance of nerve wraps and conduits have not been well documented. This case report describes the sonographic findings in a 42-year-old woman with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome status post nerve repair with a conduit. The cross-sectional area of(More)

Seizures are common among patients with brain tumors. Transient, postictal magnetic resonance imaging abnormalities are a long recognized phenomenon. However, these radiographic changes are not as well studied in the brain tumor population. Moreover, reversible neuroimaging abnormalities following seizure activity may be misinterpreted for tumor progression(More)
INTRODUCTION Reference values (RVs) are required to separate normal from abnormal values obtained in electrodiagnostic (EDx) testing. However, it is frequently impractical to perform studies on control subjects to obtain RVs. The Extrapolated Reference Values (E-Ref) procedure extracts RVs from data obtained during clinically indicated EDx testing. We(More)
