Echoneurography: ultrasound evaluation of peripheral nerves.

Sometimes echoneurography provides clues and answers to questions that can’t be answered by any other currently available utilized method in Sweden, even MR.

If a muscle lacks nerve supply or it is diminished then pathological conditions can escalate and lead to a lack of satisfactory treatment results. This is especially crucial when a surgeon is deciding the necessity of an operational procedure.
