Nerve Imaging Atlas

The objective of this atlas is to describe the characteristic features that identify peripheral nerves using ultrasound imaging.

The goals are to illustrate key anatomic features of peripheral nerves that can be identified with ultrasound imaging. This includes the best acoustic windows, optimal angles of insonation, characteristic dynamic motion and consistent associated structures. Although nerves can be imaged anywhere along their course, this atlas will provide a starting point for identifying normal nerve anatomy. We hope to promote nerve imaging with ultrasound for clinical practice, teaching and research.

The scope of the atlas includes all peripheral and cranial nerves with reported sonographic imaging (exceptions: recurrent laryngeal nerve, pudendal nerve, and optic nerve).
