  • The role of musculoskeletal ultrasound in psoriatic arthritis

  • Hamstring injuries

    Hamstring injuries are one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries. Important to recognise a hamstring injury and whether the injury is myofascial or musculotendinous and if musculotendinous is the tendon involved.

  • Imaging the post operative cuff

    Imaging of the post-operative cuff can be a very challenging task given the variable appearance of the rotator cuff following surgery. Ultrasound is an important tool for assessment particularly given the dynamic nature of the modality. This presentation will focus on techniques to accurately ass...

  • Post op shoulders with shearwave assessment

    Little is known about the morphology of healing rotator cuff after surgical repair. Shear wave elastography ultrasound (SWEUS) is a relatively new technique that evaluates tissue elasticity by applying an acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI). Dr Lisa Hackett explains the findings of a study to...

  • Inflammatory arthritis

    Key ultrasound findings in inflammatory arthritis and their use in diagnosis and beyond.

  • Hot topics in musculoskeletal ultrasound

    A discussion on commonly encountered conditions and scenarios that seem to cause difficulties and confusion for sonographers and radiologists including, subacromial bursitis and impingement, trochanteric bursitis, ultrasound of soft tissue masses and rotator cuff repair.

  • Fascicles of the achilles tendon

    Traditionally the Achilles tendon has been seen as a single tendon unit when assessed with ultrasound. Recent advances in anatomy now challenge that notion where the individual sural fascicles ñ medial and lateral gastrocnemius and the soleus tendons maintain their individual tendons down to thei...

  • Lumps and bumps. Common problems - does ultrasound help and how?

    Lumps and bumps are super?cial abnormalities with a wide aetiology, including both congenital and acquired causes. They may appear suddenly in childhood, or present as a deformity at birth; the lesions may be symptomatic or present as an incidental finding. The presentation takes the opportunity ...

  • Muscle injuries in elite athletes

    Historically, imaging studies in athletes with injuries have focused on size and site of tear, muscle component affected, and haematoma formation, but more recent studies have focused on the integrity of the connective tissues associated with the muscle injury. The aim of this presentation is to ...

  • BUCKLED: ultrasound in kids with distal upper limb fractures in the ED

    Forearm fractures in children are a common presentation to the Emergency Department. Paediatric distal forearm fractures account for almost a third of all fractures in children, with a significant proportion of these diagnosed as buckle (torus) type fractures. These fractures are unique to childr...

  • Acute finger injuries up close

    The diverse spectrum of acute finger injuries diagnosed with Ultrasound is a reflection of the hands complex anatomy and function, combined with an athlete's desire to challenge, refine and push to the limit this functionality.
    High-resolution ultrasound probes now make identification of tendon ...

  • Calcific tendinosis

    Calcification may occur in tendons due to multiple mechanisms. These include:
    ï Degenerative: necrosis of tenocytes due to ischaemia or repetitive trauma
    ï ëTraction spursí: endochondral ossification at tendon or ligament insertions
    ï Crystallopathy
    Calcific tendinosis is a crystal arthropath...

  • Ultrasound of brachial plexus injuries

    Ultrasound of the brachial plexus is complex both anatomically and sonographically. This presentation aims to explain this in more detail.

  • High-volume peritendinous injections in the management of Achilles tendinopathy

    Introduction
    Achilles tendinopathy can be a significant problem, especially in the sporting population. When conservative treatment fails, injection therapy is often offered. There are various injectable therapies currently being employed for the treatment of recalcitrant Achilles tendinopathy, ...

  • Use of ultrasound in patients with clinical signs of adhesive capsulitis

    Adhesive capsulitis (AC), also called frozen shoulder, is commonly diagnosed clinically and characterized by a global reduction of passive ranges of movement without radiographic abnormality. However, due to the effect of muscle spasm and pain, and other pathologies causing similar restriction of...

  • Adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder

    Adhesive capsulitis is the primary cause of loss of movement of the shoulder, other causes being trauma, rotator cuff dysfunction and arthritis. It consists of a restriction in the range of both passive and active movements of the shoulder; Has a prevalence of 2-5% of the population and is more c...

  • Advanced palmar fascia

    Advances in medical treatments sometimes leads the way to advancements in diagnosis. Hand Surgeons are in a brave new world of mini endoscopes with a range of tools and implants. Thus, what was a quick 5 minute scan in the past may now take a little bit longer as the Surgeon wants more detailed i...
