Ultrasound of the peripheral nerves

Ultrasound of the peripheral nerves: An ultrasound of the peripheral nerves is a procedure using reflected soundwave technology to see the peripheral nerves by placing a soundwave-transducing probe against the skin; the technician can see where a nerve has ruptured, or if there is fluid or a hematoma along the axon. During ultrasound, reflected soundwaves from the probe are transformed into a moving picture of the viewing area.
