OBJECTIVE. Sports-related peripheral nerve injuries are common among athletes and are often underrecognized because of symptom overlap with more usual sports-related bone, soft-tissue, and joint injuries. CONCLUSION. MRI plays an increasingly important role in the workup of peripheral nerve injuries and may reveal severe nerve abnormalities before they are diagnosed by electrodiagnostic testing or a clinical examination. Sport-specific peripheral nerve injuries and their MRI appearance will be discussed in this article.
