Monograph: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Applications of the Shoulder
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Applications of the Shoulder
High frequency ultrasound is a valuable tool for assessing soft tissue injuries about the shoulder. It has advantages over other imaging modalities including relatively low cost, portability, and dynamic real-time visualization. It has a high sensitivity for identifying tendon degeneration, bursitis, and rotator cuff tears. Ultrasound is also an excellent modality for diagnostic and therapeutic needle-guided procedures. A detailed knowledge of shoulder anatomy and transducer positioning is required for obtaining adequate diagnostic value from ultrasound. This Monograph is designed to help develop scanning protocols for optimizing image acquisition for musculoskeletal assessment of the shoulder.
