Parsonage-Turner Syndrome Diagnosis

A diagnosis of Parsonage Turner syndrome often is suspected based on the presence of characteristic signs and symptoms. Specialized tests may be recommended to further investigate the shoulder pain and/or muscle weakness, and to rule out other conditions that can cause similar features. These tests may include:


  • nerve conduction studies
  • electromyography
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan)
  • X-ray.
