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 10: Longitudinal USG image of normal median nerve proximal to and in the carpal tunnel. T: Flexor tendons in the carpal tunnel; MN: Median nerve

Mentions: The nerves are more prone to compression in specific locations where they course through osteofibrous tunnels. The median nerve in carpal tunnel and the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal and cubital tunnel are the common sites of entrapment in the upper limb and can be evaluated with USG [Figure 10]. Common peroneal nerve near fibular neck and posterior tibial nerve in tarsal tunnel are commonly involved in the lower limb.[12]
