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.
