About the EMG Laboratory

Our EMG laboratory at Boston Children’s Hospital is just for kids. That means that all of our physicians and technologists are experienced in working with children, making them as comfortable as possible during what can otherwise seem like a scary test. Our lab is staffed by neurologists in our Neuromuscular Center.

Founded it 1979, our EMG lab continues to offer the most sophisticated testing possible for our young patients. One of our special capabilities is single-fiber EMG, a specific test that’s useful for diagnosing myasthenia gravis but that’s rarely performed by pediatric specialists.

Zebrafish Muscles do some Heavy Lifting

A feature on the Boston Children's Genetics website explores how tiny freshwater fish are helping researchers develop new therapies for neuromuscular diseases.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
