MR neurography using DWIBS (diffusion weighted whole body imaging with background body signal suppression) allows clear visualization of lumbosacral plexus in a healthy volunteer.

Clinical impact of MR neurography

MR neurography has high spatial resolution and a large field of view, so it can help to confirm ultrasound findings when they are inconclusive
