Therefore further diagnosis of expressed external injury requires knowledge of degree and location of injury which may be planned through focused MRI advanced neurography under the constraints of its limitation.
Magnetic Resonance Neurography of the Pelvic Nerves.
However, magnetic resonance neurography may show not only early hyperintense thickening of the involved areas of the brachial plexus, (5) but also nerve inflammation and muscle denervation in addition to assessing response to therapy.
The several techniques already used in common practice, or still in their development stage, are known under the name of MR neurography. Typical protocols include high-resolution axial planes of the nerve trunks based on conventional turbo-spin echo sequences, T1 and fluid-sensitive weighting with fat suppression obtained with chemical shift selective pulses (CHESS), inversion recovery (STIR), or the Dixon method [12].

Even though the distribution of the DBRN is complicated and inconsistent, (23) enhancing our understanding of the relationship between the radial nerve and the variant El may contribute to accurate diagnosis, effective surgical procedures, and the modeling of neurovascular compartments.25 Familiarity with the variations of extensor muscles and their innervation are crucial for assessment and treatment of pathologic conditions with magnetic resonance imaging, diagnostic sonography, and magnetic resonance neurography.

High-resolution 3-T MR neurography of peroneal neuropathy.
The other 232 patients underwent MR neurography, a new technique that generates detailed images of nerves.
They introduce radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, plastic and other peripheral nerve surgeons, and technologists to the basic pathophysiology of peripheral neuropathy, how to produce high quality magnetic resonance neurography images and understand the imaging appearances and clinical relevance of various nerve pathologies, and the role of MR guided intervention.
