- Motor unit number estimation (MUNE): how may it contribute to the diagnosis of ALS?R K Olney
Department of Neurology, University of California at San Francisco, 94143 0114, USA
Amyotroph Lateral Scler Other Motor Neuron Disord 1:S41-4. 2000..In addition to its potential contributions toward the diagnosis of ALS, MUNE may have greater potential in quantifying the rate of progression in studies of the natural history of ALS and the response to experimental treatment...
