Project Title

Neuromuscular Ultrasound and Electric Impedance Myography in CMT type 1A: A Prospective Longitudinal Study

Project Summary

Dr. Harada wants to see if neuromuscular (NM) ultrasound (US) and electric impedance myography can serve as alternative assessment tools to accelerate future trials by lowering the number of patients needed to detect improvement and detecting change more quickly. Dr. Harada is using the development grant to evaluate the utility of NM US and electric impedance myography in detecting changes in nerves and muscles over 2 years.
