The purpose of this study was to make an image processing marker using 3D SHINKEI based MR Neurography images of brachial plexus to identify nerve conditions and establish the condition for normalcy and abnormality by extracting the contrast property from the second order gray level Co-occurrence Matrix. The images from fourteen healthy volunteers and three patients were studied. The contrast in perpendicular direction of nerve anatomy was twice as high as other contrasts among normal subjects, while in patients, there was no such difference. Our ongoing work has the potential to classify the severity of the detected nerve lesion.
