To the Editor.—
I would deny that the majority of neurologists are interested in or able to perform electromyography. Certainly there are neurologists who have no interest and perhaps have no competence in electrodiagnosis, but Dr. Ames's experience must be different from mine. I will readily concede that, with a few exceptions, none of the electrodiagnostic studies can be, or should be, considered diagnostic. Excluding these exceptions, they are merely laboratory studies like any other laboratory study, and the information obtained from them must be correlated with other clinical information available to the practitioner.
