New developments in clinical peripheral nerve imaging with MRI over the past few years, primarily those related to nerve entrapment syndromes, are reviewed. The basic principles of peripheral nerve imaging are described briefly. Relevant current or forthcoming technical innovations are described, and then recent work describing novel findings, organized by anatomic location (brachial plexus, upper extremity, and lower extremity), is reviewed. The review concludes with a summary and suggestions of areas in which future clinical research would be particularly helpful.
