Electrophysiological Assessment of Spinal Cord Pathology in Pain Medicine
Electrophysiological tests are useful in the assessment of both central and peripheral nervous system dysfunction. These tests have the ability to provide more specific and accurate information compared to conventional imaging modalities such as MRI or CT scan. These tests are helpful in establishing whether an abnormality seen on radiographic images is truly clinically significant. Electrophysiological tests also have the benefit of being able to detect abnormalities not seen on radiographic images.
