Role of ultrasound in evaluation of peripheral nerves.

Lawande AD, Warrier SS, Joshi MS - Indian J Radiol Imaging (2014)

Bottom Line: Ultrasonography (USG) is an excellent cost-effective modality in imaging of peripheral nerves.With the newer high-frequency probes with different footprints which allow high-resolution imaging at relatively superficial location, USG can detect and evaluate traumatic, inflammatory, infective, neoplastic, and compressive pathologies of the peripheral nerves.This article describes the technique for evaluation of nerves by USG as well as the USG appearances of normal and diseased peripheral nerves.

Figure 5: Longitudinal USG image shows complete transection of the radial nerve following old penetrating trauma. Note the amputation neuromas at both the cut ends seen as bulbous lesions

Mentions: Complete and partial transection of nerves can be differentiated by USG. In cases with transection, it is important to provide the distance between the stumps as it helps in deciding surgical management [Figure 4]. Stump or amputation neuromas may be seen as focal thickening or mass-like lesions at the nerve ends [Figure 5].[5] These are reactive thickening of the nerves and are not true tumors.
