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.
