Other diagnostic modalities that may be considered are as follows:

  • Electromyography and nerve conduction velocity testing

  • Electrophysiologic studies

  • Magnetic resonance imaging

  • Computed tomography (including single-photon emission computed tomography)

  • Nuclear imaging

  • Doppler imaging

  • Microdialysis

  • Electrocardiography

  • Nerve and skin biopsy (now rarely recommended for clinical purposes)
