Musculoskeletal ultrasonography

Radiol Clin North Am. 1992 Sep;30(5):907-25.


The scope of musculoskeletal ultrasonography has broadened considerably since its inception. Ultrasonography has established itself as a reliable cost-effective modality for the diagnosis and follow-up of a wide variety of lesions. Its real-time dynamic capability adds a perspective that other modalities lack. Growth within this field will continue, driven by improved technology, cost consciousness, and the creativity of those who employ this powerful diagnostic tool.
