Figure 8: Posttraumatic median nerve end neuromas. (a-c) 3D PD VISTA images showing (a) normal caliber and signal intensity of the median nerve proximal to the injury site; (b) globular swelling with altered signal intensity of the median nerve at the injury site; (c) The nerve could not be traced for next few sections and the nerve reappears with a neuroma formation distally suggestive of discontinuity in the nerve with neuroma formation on either side, (d) STIR Coronal (thin) image showing the neuroma at either end of the transected nerve, (e) Longitudinal sonogram showing the two end neuromas (arrows) with a gap between the two ends
