Diagnostics and Testing

When it comes to neuromuscular disorders, prompt diagnosis and treatment is crucial to ensuring a better quality of life. But because symptoms of neuromuscular disorders overlap and mimic those of other diseases, diagnosis can be difficult and often delayed. The specialists at the Northwestern Medicine Neuromuscular Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital offer the latest diagnostic tools to diagnose neuromuscular diseases.
