Ultrasound Evaluation of Focal Neuropathies: Correlation with Electrodiagnosis

Overview

With a "how-to" approach, the author meticulously describes the clinical evaluation of the peripheral nerves throughout the body using high-frequency ultrasound. Evaluations include both normal and pathologic findings, as well as discussions of relevant non-neurologic tissue. The book opens with an introduction to ultrasound physics, instrumentation, and image optimization. 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 ...

Overview

With a "how-to" approach, the author meticulously describes the clinical evaluation of the peripheral nerves throughout the body using high-frequency ultrasound. Evaluations include both normal and pathologic findings, as well as discussions of relevant non-neurologic tissue. The book opens with an introduction to ultrasound physics, instrumentation, and image optimization. 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 correct interpretation of findings. Clinical cases that integrate anatomic localization with clinical and electrodiagnostic assessment are incorporated throughout. Also includes a bound-in DVD with live motion video loops of the examinations to correspond with stills in the book to demonstrate the important dynamic information ultrasound provides.

Ultrasound Evaluation of Focal Neuropathies features:

  • Comprehensive yet practical text and atlas with detailed discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of clinical and electrodiagnostic assessments
  • Thorough guide to ultrasound techniques and appearance of normal and abnormal peripheral nerves
  • Clinical cases that pair the imaging information with clinical and electrodiagnostic findings are interwoven throughout with analysis of anatomy relevant to the peripheral nerves being studied
  • Hundreds of high-quality images and line drawings to correlate anatomy and reflect probe placement
  • Companion DVD with motion loops is provided to facilitate understanding of the dynamic image

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christina M Marciniak, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This book describes the use of high frequency ultrasound in the evaluation of focal neuropathies and blends this with a discussion of electrodiagnostic techniques, which have historically been used to characterize focal nerve disorders. The chapters are organized into anatomic regions; each chapter includes case examples and extensive illustrations.
Purpose: As technological advances have led to high-quality resolution in ultrasound imaging, medical literature outlining the use of ultrasound in the assessment of muscle and nerve has exploded over the past decade. This work carefully describes ultrasound techniques in specific nerve as well as plexus evaluations. In addition, it provides anatomic details and a discussion of related nerve conduction techniques in each chapter. Relevant clinical information complements the nuanced details of the techniques. There is also a chapter outlining ultrasound findings in generalized neuromuscular conditions.
Audience: This work both introduces nerve ultrasound and electrodiagnostic techniques to those inexperienced in field and, in later chapters, offers sufficient detail to be a useful reference to those already practicing either or both techniques. It is written by a pioneer in the field of neuromuscular ultrasound who is a respected clinician in the field of electrodiagnostics.
Features: A description of basic electrodiagnostic techniques and principles begins the book, followed by two introductory chapters on ultrasound. The first details the physics of ultrasound, with ample diagrams and screen images of both equipment and sonographic images to illustrate the relevant points. The second reviews in detail the ultrasound evaluation of peripheral nerves. These three introductory chapters are written at a basic level and would be understood by resident physicians or practicing physicians new to either of these diagnostic tools. Each subsequent chapter reviews the techniques used for each major peripheral nerve and highlights the strengths and weaknesses of ultrasound and nerve conduction as tools in the evaluation of a specific neuropathy.
Assessment: "This will be a useful teaching manual for resident and practicing physicians who are familiar with electrodiagnostics, but are expanding their clinical skills in the area of ultrasound. In addition, the detailed anatomy, in conjunction with the relevant ultrasonographic scanning techniques, earns this book a place as a useful resource for those already familiar with nerve ultrasound. This is among the first books that address the complementary roles of ultrasound and electrodiagnosis in nerve evaluation, if not the first. It does not disappoint. "
