Zsuzsanna Arányi, MD, PhD, Doctor of Science of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences is an Associate Professor of neurology and clinical neurophysiology, the Head of the Laboratory of Clinical Neurophysiology and the tertiary referral centre for neuromuscular disorders at the Dept. of Neurology, Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary. She is a member of the governing body of the Hungarian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, the Hungarian Society of Neurology, the Public Body and the Clinical Neuroscience Committee of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) Scientific Panel Neuropathies.
After graduating from Semmelweis University, she has held a continuous position at the Dept. of Neurology, Semmelweis University. She has also spent time in training and research in clinical neurophysiology at Inselspital, University of Bern, Switzerland. Her initial research interest focused on transcranial magnetic stimulation, which later turned to electromyography and neuromuscular disorders, and lately to neuromuscular ultrasound. As one of the pioneers of neuromuscular ultrasound in Hungary, she has been devoted to advocating the method as a complementary diagnostic tool to electrophysiology, both in Hungary and abroad. She received a National Brain Research Program research grant as the head of the joint Peripheral Nervous System Research Group of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and Semmelweis University. She has been an invited lecturer in numerous national and international courses and conferences on neuromuscular ultrasound, and provides hands-on training in neuromuscular ultrasound. Her present research areas include the ultrasonography of entrapment neuropathies, neuralgic amyotrophy, and thoracic outlet syndrome.
