Nervous system

(Nervensystem)


dog ultrasonography ultrasound / hund sonographie ultraschall

Transverse ultrasonographic scans of the carpal canal at the proximal (P) and the distal (D) levels of the carpal canal. Color Doppler imaging is helpful to easily localize the median nerve. Note that the size of the median nerve is larger at the proximal part of the carpal canal as compared to the distal part. The transverse diameter (A) and the posteroanterior diameter (B) of the median nerve, the median nerve (MN), the median artery (MA), the deep digital flexor (DDFT) tendons and the superficial digital flexor tendons (SDFT).

Sciatic(ScN) and femoral (FN) nerve

(C) Corresponding transverse ultrasound image of the ScN. The two components of the ScN are readily distinguished and appear as two hypoechoic tubular st
ructures surrounded by a thin hyperechoic rim. (1*) peroneus communis nerve, and (1**) tibialis nerve. (D) Local anaesthetic solution surrounding the ScN showing the characteristic ‘donut sign’. (1) ScN, (2) biceps femoris muscle, (3) femur, (4) adductor magnus muscle, (5) local anaesthetic solution. Prox, proximal; Dis, distal; Cr, cranial; Cd, caudal; Med, medial; Lat,
lateral.
