Recommended Ultrasound Protocols

MUSCOLOSKELETAL
  Ultrasound of the Ankle Joint
    Multiple longitudinal and transverse scan of the ankle joint shows:

  • The Achilles tendon shows normal fibrillar pattern in the parenchyma.
  • The musculo-tendon junction is unremarkable.
  • The peroneus brevis and longus is intact.
  • The posterior tibialis tendon is not disrupted.
    Impression:
  • Essentialy negative ultrasound study of the ankle joint.
  Ultrasound of the Knee
    Multiple longitudinal and transverse scan of the knee joint shows:
  • There are normal fibrillary patterns noted on the patellar and quadriceps tendon.
  • The medial and lateral collateral ligaments are intact.
  • The visualized portions of the medial meniscus shows normal echogenic pattern.
    Impression:
  • Essentialy negative ultrasound study of the knee.
  Ultrasound of the Shoulder
    Multiple longitudinal and transverse scan of the shoulder shows::
  • The biceps tendon is within the bicipital groove.
  • There is good fibrillary echogenic pattern noted in the biceps tendon.
  • The subscapular tendon is intact.
  • The supraspinatus and infraspinatus has normal echogenic pattern.
  • Dynamic study shows no impongement on the acromio-clavicular area.
  • The acromio-clavicular joints are unremarkable.
    Impression:
  • Essentialy negative ultrasound study of the shoulder.
