Contents Introduction -- Electrodiagnostic assessment of peripheral neuropathies -- Introduction to high frequency ultrasound -- Ultrasound evaluation of peripheral nerves -- Evaluation of the brachial plexus and thoracic outlet syndrome -- Evaluation of nerves about the neck and shoulder -- Evaluation of the radial nerve and its branches -- Evaluation of the median nerve -- Evaluation of the ulnar nerve -- Evaluation of the nerves about the hip and thigh -- Evaluation of the fibular nerve -- Evaluation of the tibial nerve -- Evaluation of other sensory nerves around the leg, foot, and ankle -- Ultrasound in generalized neuromuscular conditions -- Future directions for ultrasound of peripheral nerve and focal neuropathies
Summary Taking a ""how-to"" approach, the author meticulously describes the clinical evaluation of the peripheral nerves throughout the body using high-frequency ultrasound. The book opens with an introduction to the basics of ultrasound physics, instrumentation, and image optimization, scanning non-neurologic tissue, pertinent anatomy and anatomic variations, and normal and pathologic findings. The remainder of the text is a highly visual tour through the multiple nerves of the shoulder, neck, and upper and lower limbs, focusing on sonographic technique and acquisition and interpretation of findings
