Ultrasound is an ideal tool to examine the joints and surrounding soft tissues like tendons, ligaments and joint linings. Musculoskeletal and joint sonography is sensitive, without radiation exposure, easy accessible, quick, and has high patient tolerability with relatively low cost.
A real-time scanner allow the dynamic assessment of the musculoskeletal system and a specific examination for each patient. In addition, joint aspiration and injection accuracy can be improved. Probes with high frequency improve the image resolution and allow visualization of fine anatomic structures of the small parts. As musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) is very operator dependent, experience and training is required. Ultrasound is also often used in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

(LIPU / LIUS) Low intensity pulsed ultrasound is a form of mechanical power that is transmitted through and into tissues as an acoustic pressure wave. Low intensity pulsed ultrasound is often used in musculoskeletal and joint ultrasound and has therapeutic benefits for healing of (fresh) fractures, those that demonstrate either a delayed union or nonunion, and soft tissue repair.

Most usual ultrasound machines are 2D real-time systems. This types of ultrasound scanners allow to assess both motion and anatomy, including the motion of heart valves, the movement of intestines and lungs and also to guide interventions, like for example a biopsy or a laparoscopic ultrasound.
A standard real-time scanner consists of a mobile console with the monitor on the top and rows of small containers at the bottom to accommodate a variety of scanner probes. The linear, curved or phased array transducers are usually equipped with multiple crystals or in some cases with a moving crystal. A real-time scanner may be e.g., a mechanical scanner or electronic array scanner.

Medical Sonography (also called ultrasonography) uses equipment that generates high frequency sound waves to produce images from muscles, soft tissues, fluid collections, and vascular structures of the human body. Obstetric sonography is commonly used during pregnancy. Sonography visualizes anatomy, function, and pathology of for example gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, liver, uterus, ovaries, urinary bladder, eye, thyroid, breast, aorta, veins and arteries in the extremities, carotid arteries in the neck, as well as the heart.
A typical medical ultrasound machine, usually a real-time scanner, operates in the frequency range of 2 to 13 megahertz.

(US) Also called echography, sonography, ultrasonography, echotomography, ultrasonic tomography.
Ultrasonic waves generated by a quartz crystal, cause mechanical perturbation of an elastic medium with rarefaction and compression of the medium particles. These waves are reflected at the interfaces between different tissues due to differences in the mechanical properties of the tissues. The transmission and reflection of these high-frequency waves are displayed with different types of ultrasound modes.
Using the wave propagation speed in tissues, the time of reflection information can be converted into distance of reflection information. The higher the frequency used in medical ultrasound imaging, the better the image resolution. With higher frequencies, the absorption of the sound beam by the medium is also higher and the beam cannot penetrate so far.
Higher frequencies, for example 7.5 MHz are used to provide good detail of superficial organs such as the thyroid gland and the breast. Lower frequencies, for example 3.5 MHz are used for examinations of the abdomen.
The advantages of ultrasound in medical imaging are:
list_point The procedure is noninvasive.
list_point Ultrasound is safe with no potential risks.
list_point It is easy available and relatively less expensive.
Diagnostic ultrasound imaging is generally a safe technique with no adverse effects. Since ultrasound is so widely used in pregnancy and in pediatric imaging, it is essential for all practitioners to ensure that its use remains safe. Ultrasound causes mechanical and thermal effects in tissue which are increased as the output power is increased.
There has been a general trend towards increased output with the introduction of color flow imaging, more use of pulsed spectral Doppler and higher demands on B-mode imaging. In response to these increasings, recommendations for the safe use of ultrasound have been issued. In addition, recent ultrasound safety regulations have changed to more responsibility of the operator to ensure that ultrasound is used safely.
