Abstract

As experience is gained, ultrasound (US) continues to identify an increasing number of nerves and related pathologic conditions. High-resolution US provides cost-effective, accurate morphologic information regarding a variety of nerve abnormalities including inherited disorders and developmental anomalies, nerve involvement in medical diseases, entrapment syndromes, traumatic injuries, and neurogenic masses. In many of these conditions, US can significantly enhance clinical decision making regarding conservative or surgical treatment. In clinical practice, US can be considered an ideal complement to clinical and electrophysiologic testing for the diagnostic work-up of patients who have peripheral neuropathies.
