Ultrasound of bone-joint system is usually used for diagnosis of:
Injuries to the tendon, for example an injury of a rotating shoulder cuff or Achilles tendon,
Muscle abnormalities, such as muscle ruptures or soft tissue formations in them,
Bleeding and other ongoing formations in muscles, bursas or joints,
Less benign and malignant soft tissue tumor formations,
Early changes in inflammatory joint diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis).
Ultrasound waves hardly penetrate through the bone and show only the outer bone contour. To display the internal structure of the bone or the inside of the joints, we use other radiological methods, primarily MR.
