The Motion Analysis Laboratory at Children's Hospital, San Diego is pleased
to announce that our 13th Annual EMG: Fine-Wire Technique Course is being
held on October 19-20, 2001.

Chaired by Dr. David Sutherland and with a guest faculty including Dr.
Richard Lieber, this unique 2-day course is designed for physicians and
physical therapists interested in learning correct insertion techniques in
fine-wire electromyography. The course will:
- provide hands-on experience in fine-wire electrode insertion
- provide an understanding of EMG instrumentation and hands-on experience in
hardware use
- review cross-sectional and surface anatomy for accuracy in electrode
- review muscle and nerve physiology, as it relates to EMG

Each participant will insert 7 electrodes, confirm placement with electrical
stimulation, act as a subject for insertions, and operate the EMG and
stimulation equipment.
