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.

ABSTRACT
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 7: (A) Longitudinal and (B) axial USG images in a patient with fibrolipomatous hamartoma of the median nerve in mid palm. There is fusiform enlargement of the nerve with hyperechoic fat interspersed between hypoechoic nerve fascicles

Mentions: Lipofibromatous hamartoma is benign proliferation of mature adipocytes in peripheral nerves separating the axons. The median nerve is most commonly affected. USG shows fusiform enlargement of the nerve with a characteristic appearance with cable-like hypoechoic nerve fascicles separated by hyperechoic fat [Figure 7A and B].[7]
