Neuromuscular Ultrasound in Common Entrapment Neuropathies
Neuromuscular ultrasound involves the use of high-resolution ultrasound to image the peripheral nervous system of patients with suspected neuromuscular diseases. It complements electrodiagnostic studies well by providing anatomic information regarding nerves, muscles, vessels, tendons, ligaments, bones, and other structures that cannot be obtained with nerve conduction studies and electromyography. Neuromuscular ultrasound has been studied extensively over the past 10 years and has been used most often in the assessment of entrapment neuropathies. This review focuses on the use of neuromuscular ultrasound in 4 of the most common entrapment neuropathies: carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy at the elbow and wrist, and fibular neuropathy at the knee. CME/CEUs is not available on this product.

1) describe basic ultrasound findings in various common entrapment neuropathies and develop an undersanding of the clinical utility of these tests, and
2) develop an understanding of the focal anatomy of the described entrapment neuropathies as it relates to ultrasonic findings
