Nerve ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of neuropathyGoedee, H. Stephana; van der Pol, W. Ludoa; Hendrikse, Jeroenb; van den Berg, Leonard H.aCurrent Opinion in Neurology: October 2018 - Volume 31 - Issue 5 - p 526–533 doi: 10.1097/WCO.0000000000000607 PERIPHERAL NERVE AND NEURO-MUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASE: Edited by Eduardo Nobile-Orazio Buy SDC Abstract Author InformationAuthors Article MetricsMetrics Purpose of review This review summarizes the most relevant developments in the fields of nerve ultrasound and MRI in the diagnosis of treatable inflammatory neuropathies over the last 18 months. Recent findings MRI and nerve ultrasound can accurately identify potentially treatable neuropathies and thereby help to improve diagnosis. Advanced MRI techniques also show potential to dissect pathophysiology. The apparent mismatch between nerve function and morphology is not surprising and reflects different dimensions of the disease process in neuropathies. Summary MRI and nerve ultrasound have become useful tools in the diagnosis of inflammatory neuropathies.
