Ultrasound Imaging of the Axillary Nerve and its Role in the Diagnosis of Traumatic Impairment

H. Gruber, S. Peer, L. Gruber, W. Loescher, T. Bauer, A. Loizides

However, the AN has a rather complex course through several soft tissue compartments of the shoulder and axilla. Therefore, imaging of the nerve with MRI and sonography is troublesome. Thus detection and sonographic assessment bases on thorough knowledge of local topography.
