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 9: (A) Longitudinal USG image and (B) color Doppler image of median nerve in a patient with leprosy. The entire nerve is thickened with loss of fascicular architecture and hypoechoic appearance. There is increased endoneurium and perineurium vascularity on color Doppler

Mentions: USG can provide objective evidence of nerve enlargement and also evaluate its internal architecture. In leprosy, the nerves may show enlargement as well as edema, loss of fascicular architecture, and increased peri- and endoneurium vascularity on Doppler [Figure 9A and B]. Jain et al. have demonstrated these changes in ulnar, median, lateral peroneal, and popliteal nerves.[11]
