MR imaging of the peripheral nerves, called MR neurography, is the most rapidly developing musculoskeletal imaging technique in major tertiary care centers. Technological advances have led to important changes with rapid diffusion of the technique in both university and community settings.

The current issue of “Seminars in Musculoskelettal Radiology”, with Dr. Avneesh Chhabra as Guest Editor, provides a comprehensive overview over this topic. The issue presents the current knowledge and summarizes the important facts about MR neurography.
