Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The ever-increasing use of higher field strength (3 T) scanners and novel pulse sequences with improved spatial resolution and signal-to-noise ratio have rendered MR neurography (MRN) a valuable technique in the assessment of peripheral neuropathies. The aim of this study is to illustrate the imaging findings of high-resolution MRN in patients who suffer from tibial nerve entrapment due to a soleal fibromuscular sling and to correlate the imaging findings with intraoperative and clinical examination results. CONCLUSION. This article depicts the surgically confirmed imaging findings of high-resolution MRN in tibial nerve entrapment by the soleal sling.
