Value of High-Resolution MRI in the Diagnosis of Brachial Plexus Injury in Infants and Young Children – Dove Medical Press

Figure 1 M, 37 months, right upper limb weakness for 3 months. Muscle strength was graded as I. EMG showed neurogenic damage to the right brachial plexus. Coronal MIP 3D-STIR SPACE image (A) displayed thickening of the right nerve root at C5 and C6 level (thick arrow), right nerve root loosening at C7 level (arrowhead), and right nerve root dissection at C8 level (thin arrow). Sagittal (B) and axial (C) T2WI showed pseudomeningocele at C8 level (thin arrow).

 
Purpose: To investigate the value of high-resolution MRI based on 3D-short inversion time inversion recovery sampling perfection with application-optimized contrasts (3D-STIR SPACE) sequence for the diagnosis of brachial plexus injury in infants and young children.
Methods: Physical examination, electromyography (EMG) and MRI data of 26 children with brachial plexus injury were retrospectively analyzed. Sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy were calculated for the three tests. The agreement among these examinations was analyzed with the Kappa test. P< 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
