2011 A comparison of ultrasound and clinical examination in the detection of flexor tenosynovitis in early arthritis

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/91/abstract

Tenosynovitis is widely accepted to be common in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and postulated to be the first manifestation of RA, but its true prevalence in early disease and in particular the hand has not been firmly established. The aims of this study were first to investigate the frequency and distribution...

2011 A prospective study of shoulder pain in primary care

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/119/abstract

Rotator cuff and Subacromial Bursa pathology were the most common findings on ultrasound and MR Arthrography. Evidence of a full thickness supraspinatus tear was associated with symptoms arising from the subacromial region, and a biceps tendon sheath effusion and an intact rotator cuff were associated with an intra-articular Glen0-humeral joint...

2011 Can ultrasonography make identification of asymptomatic hyperuricemic individuals at risk for developing gouty arthritis more crystal clear Open Access

Location: http://arthritis-research.com/content/pdf/ar3290.pdf

Hyperuricemia is the most important risk factor for gouty arthritis. The quandary is how to predict which patient with asymptomatic hyperuricemia will develop gouty arthritis. Can ultrasonography help identify hyperuricemic individuals at risk for developing gouty arthritis? In the previous issue of Arthritis Research & Therapy, Pineda and colleagues found ultrasonography changes suggestive of gouty arthritis in 25%...

2011 Persistence of back pain symptoms after pregnancy and bone mineral density changes as measured by quantitative ultrasound

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/55/abstract

Conclusion Persistence of back pain symptoms after pregnancy could be related to an inability to recover fully from BMD loss during the index pregnancy.

A case of intra-articular fracture of the knee joint with three layers within lipohemarthrosis by ultrasonography and computed tomography

Location: http://www.nv-med.com/rm/pdf/2000_18_5/319.pdf

We report a case of intra-articular fracture of the knee joint showing three layers within lipohemarthrosis. Sagittal ultrasonography showed three layers (double fluid-fluid level): a superior hyperechoic layer of fat, an intermediate anechoic layer of serum, and an inferior hypoechoic layer of red blood cells. Horizontal computed tomography imaging demonstrated...

Detection of subacromial bursa thickening by sonography in shoulder impingement syndrome

Location: http://www.cgmh.org.tw/cgmj/3002/300206.pdf

CONCLUSION: Increased bursa thickness in the symptomatic side may be an alternative sonographic indicator of subacromial bursitis and partial-thickness rotator cuff tears, even when measured to be less than 2 mm. Sonographic examination of subacromial bursa thickness is not an appropriate technique to differentiate the Neer stages I and II...

Reliability and validity of ultrasound imaging of features of knee osteoarthritis in the community

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/70/abstract

Conclusion : Substantial to excellent agreement was found between ultrasound observers for the presence of osteophytes and measurement of effusion size; it was moderate to substantial for femoral cartilage thickness. Moderate to substantial agreement was observed between ultrasound and radiographs for osteophyte presence.
Reliability and validity of ultrasound imaging of features...

Sonographic and CT findings in lipohemarthrosis

Location: http://www.ajronline.org/cgi/content/full/188/4/W389

A 25-year-old man presented to the emergency department because of pain and swelling of the left knee after a motorcycle accident that had occurred 2 days earlier. He had no previous significant clinical or surgical history. Clinical examination suggested the presence of joint effusion in the suprapatellar pouch, with severe...

The clinical utility of ultrasonography for rotator cuff disease, shoulder impingement syndrome and subacromial bursitis

Location: http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/188_01_070108/awe10534_fm.html

Periarticular shoulder disorders are common in clinical practice, and diagnosis is often difficult. Medicare statistics indicate that between 2001 and 2006 the use of diagnostic shoulder ultrasonography increased significantly. Rotator cuff disease, shoulder impingement syndrome and subacromial bursitis are among the most common diagnoses reported on shoulder ultrasonography. Shoulder ultrasonography...

US of the shoulder

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16352733

Ultrasonography (US) has been shown to be an effective imaging modality in the evaluation of both rotator cuff and non-rotator cuff disorders, usually serving in a complementary role to magnetic resonance imaging of the shoulder. US technique for shoulder examination depends on patient positioning, scanning protocol for every tendon and...

Using sonography to reveal and aspirate joint effusions

Location: http://www.ajronline.org/cgi/content/full/174/5/1353

Traditionally, joint aspiration has been performed using only external anatomic landmarks ("blind" aspiration) or fluoroscopic guidance. We illustrate the technique and role of joint aspiration of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle with sonographic guidance. Sonographic evaluation and guidance of aspiration offers several advantages over the traditional approaches. The...
