Musculoskeletal ultrasonography in physical and rehabilitation medicine.
Summary of "Musculoskeletal ultrasonography in physical and rehabilitation medicine."
Musculoskeletal ultrasound has gained a significant place in the diagnosis and management of various musculoskeletal disorders due to its several advantages (being convenient, inexpensive, non-invasive, repeatable, providing dynamic imaging and not requiring any exposure to radiation). It has also become a valuable tool in the daily clinical practice of physical and rehabilitation medicine physicians; the musculoskeletal ultrasound probe having become synonymous with the physician's stethoscope. In this paper, aside from drawing attention to this growing issue in the agenda of PRM physicians, we will touch upon its basic technical features and certain aspects as regards muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve, joint lesions and ultrasound guided interventions.

The diagnosis and treatment of human responses of individuals and groups to actual or potential health problems with the characteristics of altered functional ability and altered life-style. (American Nurses Association & Association of Rehabilitation Nurses. Standards of Rehabilitation Nursing Practice, 1986, p.2)
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.
A medical specialty concerned with the use of physical agents, mechanical apparatus, and manipulation in rehabilitating physically diseased or injured patients.
