The objective was to assess if nerve ultrasound has a role in diagnosing sensory neuronopathy in spinocerebellar ataxia syndrome (SCA) by examining if proposed diagnostic cut-off criteria of ultrasound in sensory neuronopathy caused by cerebellar ataxia neuropathy vestibular areflexia syndrome (CANVAS) were also discriminatory for SCA-related sensory neuronopathy.
