Professor Erik Stålberg, Ph.D.

Prof. Stalberg is a Professor Emeritus at the Uppsala University where he has spent his lifetime to learning, teaching, research and patient care. He is internationally recognized for his contributions to electrodiagnostic medicine. He pioneered the technique of single fiber EMG, and also other methods of quantitative analysis. He has promoted quantitative analysis and tele-medicine. He has trained many luminaries in this field. He has published over 450 articles, written chapters in many text books, and co- authored the book ‘Single Fiber EMG’. He has lectured in many countries and conferences where he has been showered with recognition and awards. Among them, American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine gave him the “Distinguished Researcher Award” and “Lifetime Achievement Award”.

Sanjeev Nandedkar, Ph.D.

With over 30 years of experience, Sanjeev is an award winning author, editor and reviewer, researcher, instrument design engineer, teacher, and clinical expert in the EMG field. He has delivered lectures, workshops and seminars in over 25 countries at universities, hospitals and EMG conferences. As an editor, Sanjeev started the “EMG on DVD” series. In collaboration with other clinicians, he developed Motor Unit Number Index (MUNIX) along with Multi-motor unit Analysis (MMA) and Turns & Amplitude (TA) methods available on Natus EMG systems. His primary research interest is in Automatic analysis of EMG signals, Modeling EMG signals and Technical aspects of EMG waveforms. Sanjeev is currently a Senior Consultant at Natus Neuro.

Course Overview
Electrodiagnostic studies can provide useful quantitative data. It is important to understand the relationship between the measurements and their generator to translate the results into underlying disease processes and anatomic generators. In this seminar, the faculty will discuss the quantitation in routine nerve conduction and needle electromyography and will perform practical demonstrations of the recording techniques and analysis of pre-recorded waveforms in patients with different neuromuscular diseases.

Intended Audience
Neurologists, Neurophysiologists, Neurophysiology Technicians and all interested in EMG techiniques.
