Biography

Dr. Kerasnoudis is currently working as Head of the Outpatient Department of Neuroimmunology of the St. Luke Hospital in Thessaloniki Greece. He is board certified for electromyography, neuromuscular ultrasound and extracranial-intracranial Doppler/duplex ultrasound from the German Society of Clinical Neurophysiology (DGKN) and the European Society of Neurosonology and cerebral Haemodynamics (ECNCH).

Dr. Kerasnoudis is the principal investigator of various nerve ultrasound studies on immune-mediated neuropathies. His main scientific contributions are the detection of possible distribution patterns of pathological nerve ultrasound changes in immune-mediated neuropathies, such as the Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS), the multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) and the chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). His nerve ultrasound group based in Bochum, Germany and Greece introduced for the first time in the literature a novel ultrasound score (Bochum Ultrasound Score), allowing the differentiation of the CIDP from GBS during the acute/subacute phase. He won in Berlin the “Young Investigator Award” and Research Scholarship from the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) for his scientific work and publications on neuromuscular ultrasound.

Dr. Kerasnoudis is coauthor of three books on neuromuscular ultrasound and author of many peer-reviewed original articles. He is member of the German and Greek Neurological Society and enlisted in the editorial board and reviewer list of several journals of international repute.
