Author
Abstract
Diagnosis of ligament and musculotendinous unit injury and overuse represents an increasingly important clinical problem in the athletic population. A review of recent literature on diagnostic ultrasound in sports medicine is presented. There is limited, but increasing, objective proof to support the use of diagnostic ultrasound using in common sports disorders. The improvements in ultrasound allow visualisation of soft tissue injuries in exquisite detail. The ability to perform interventional procedures real-time with ultrasound is an additional benefit compared to MRI. An overview is given of ultrasound applications in sports medicine.
