NCS-USES OF SNAP

1. Sensory nerve conduction studies can be most useful in diagnosis of lesions that are distal to the DRG, including plexopathies, entrapment neuropathies, and polyneuropathies.

2. Sensory nerve conduction are normal in the setting of radiculopathies (injury is proximal to the DRG), CNS disorders, NMJ diseases, and myopathies (the latter two because recordings are obtained from nerve and not muscle).
