Introduction: Intervertebral disc prolapse (PIVD) accounts for majority of cases of low backache seen by an orthopaedician in clinical practice and is major contributor of functional disability. The diagnosis of a prolapse disc is clinical and can usually be made based upon compatible symptoms and examination findings. The most useful modalities in the evaluation of lumbosacral radiculopathy are MRI, CT, electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS).
Aims and Objectives: Correlation of Electromyography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging as modalities of evaluation of lumbar intervertebral disc prolapse.
Materials and methods: Clinically and radiologically proved cases of PIVD were electrodiagnostically evaluated in the department of physiology in collaboration with department of orthopaedics, Pt. B.D Sharma PGIMS, Rohtak. Results obtained were statistically analysed using chi square test (p
