The educational objectives of this continuing medical education activity are to describe the normal anatomy of the brachial plexus, to name the most common symptoms associated with a brachial plexopathy, to describe the most common imaging findings resulting from trauma to the brachial plexus, to describe the imaging manifestations of common neoplasias affecting the brachial plexus, and to also describe the imaging findings and symptoms related to irradiation-induced brachial plexopathies.

CONCLUSION:

In this article, I have illustrated and described the normal anatomy of the brachial plexus; the most common symptoms related to brachial plexopathy; and imaging findings related to trauma, tumors, and irradiation affecting the brachial plexus.
