Note the varying echogenicity within the nerve and the sometimes greatly enlarged individual fascicles. with botulinum toxin or other medicines. 30 Nerve Blood Flow With the introduction of color Doppler, it has become possible to conveniently demonstrate blood flow in structures surrounding nerves or nerve blood flow itself. Hypervascularity of nerves is seen in certain entrapments (CTS) and in inflammatory nerve disease such as occurs in leprosy. 31 The velocity of the median nerve blood flow is determined by adjusting the color window assessing the shift in the color map, with the distal section of the probe on the distal wrist crease.
