Beginning with a review of transducer selection and patient positioning, Jamie Maloney proceeds to demonstrate how to scan the ulnar nerve in the cubital tunnel, checking for anterior subluxation of the ulnar nerve over the medial epicondyle. In the cubital tunnel, she demonstrates how to assess the median nerve for potential sites of nerve compression. Next, Jamie demonstrates, at the level of the proximal elbow, how to assess the radial nerve at its origin and as it branches into the superficial branch and posterior interosseous nerve at the radiocapitellar joint. Other scanning techniques presented include evaluation of the median nerve at the wrist and the ulnar and radial nerves in the distal forearm and wrist.
