Abstract

Peripheral nerve tumors are often evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), although there are many advantages offered with high-resolution ultrasonography (HRUS). This case report emphasizes the value of HRUS in the diagnosis and management of a patient with a cystic radial nerve Schwannoma. In addition, information on tumor stiffness, obtained with shear-wave sonoelastography (SWE), is presented.
