We propose a standardized sonographic examination technique to evaluate the muscles of the hypothenar region and describe their normal sonographic appearance. The hypothenar region was studied with sonography in 20 healthy volunteers using 5-12-MHz linear-array transducers. The assessment included dynamic testing. All hypothenar muscles could be identified in all subjects and their courses followed entirely. In addition, their function could be assessed by scanning during active and passive movements. Knowledge of the normal sonographic anatomy of the hypothenar region is essential for evaluation of pathologic conditions. Copyright 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
