This first of its kind richly illustrated book provides a tabular and schematic representation of all the peripheral nerves in the human body using a standardized landmark-based algorithm for the definition of the nerve’s “Point of optimal visibility (POV)”. In this atlas the nerves of the human body are depicted with high-frequent ultrasound probes with frequencies up to 24 MHz: it presents not only the “known” large nerves (N. ischiadicus, N. femoralis, N. medianus etc.), but also the tiny nerves you have learned in your anatomy sessions but forgotten in the course of time! Based on clear illustrations using palpaple/visible external and easily accessible internal landmarks, it offers “nerve sonographers” a clear sonoanatomic guidance on how to easily find the nerve. Additionally, it describes the exact positioning of the probe so that each nerve can be found at its point of optimal visibility. These mental maps for nerve sonographeurs are intended not only for beginners but also for “advanced” specialists requiring instructions on how to easily find even tiny peripheral nerves: especially for neurologists, anaesthesiologists, radiologists, pain practionioners, rheumatologists and surgeons who seek a clear standardized step by step manual on “Where do I find a nerve the easiest?”

In recent years, sonography of the peripheral nervous system has gained widespread acceptance. New diagnostic applications have emerged, and the field of ultrasound-guided interventions has expanded significantly: regional anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks, and similar techniques are now frequently performed under ultrasound guidance by anesthesiologists and pain physicians alike. This atlas of peripheral nerve ultrasound is designed to meet the daily needs of both radiologists and clinicians by allowing rapid review of typical features, knowledge of which is important for successful diagnosis and intervention. The side by side presentation of ultrasound images with anatomical cryosections and photographs of transducer positions allows for reliable sonographic identification of even tiny nerves in regions of complex topography. The practical value of the atlas is further enhanced by correlations with high-resolution MRI scans.

High Resolution Sonography of the Peripheral Nervous System

This however results in a very complex regional topographic anatomy. Therefore
a well-founded knowledge of regional anatomy and topography is an
indispensable prerequisite for the sonographic assessment of peripheral nerves.

The book presents material from the September 2003 meeting of three societies that met simultaneously: the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AAEM) had its 50th annual meeting; the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) held its 27th Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology; the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) had its 57th annual meeting. The IFCN is the international society whose members are the societies of clinical neurophysiology around the world, and the AAEM and ACNS are two such members. The meeting was wide ranging and covered all aspects of clinical neurophysiology in an up-to-date fashion. This title provides an update on a broad range of topics, from EEG to EMG, from evoked potentials to magnetic brain stimulation, from neuroimaging to operating room monitoring, from autonomic function testing to polysomnography. There was also emphasis on diseases that clinical neurophysiologists see, e.g. updates on neuropathies, myopathies, the epilepsies, movement disorders and genetics. The chapters of the book derive from plenary lectures and symposia.
