“Catch me if you can”. The contribution of ultrasound to rapidly unveil a nerve lesion


      • Imaging techniques are useful in the evaluation of neuropathies.
      • Ultrasound evaluation is advantageous to rapidly see the nerve in different sites.
      • Magnetic resonance is very precise and ultrasound is incredibly flexible.
