MR imaging is the procedure of choice for depicting disorders of the peripheral nervous system. Continuing technical developments such as improvements in surface coil design and newer pulse sequences have resulted in higher quality MR images of the peripheral nervous system that can be obtained more rapidly. Peripheral nerve pathology as well as muscle denervation can be detected and characterized with MR imaging. In this article we discuss our current technique and strategies for image analysis and describe our recent clinical experience with MR imaging of peripheral nerve disorders.
