Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brachial plexus was performed in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes in seven volunteers. Normal structures were delineated by comparison with axial and sagittal cadaver sections and with gross dissection. Differentiation of soft tissues with MR imaging enabled the brachial plexus to be defined from surrounding muscle and vascular structures. Multiplanar imaging demonstrated anatomic detail not previously demonstrated with other radiologic modalities and provided excellent delineation of the components of the brachial plexus from the ventral rami to the peripheral nerve branches.
