Abstract

Ultrasonography is a common tool for clinicians to evaluate abdominal, cardiac or gynecological problems for decades but the musculoskeletal ultrasonography is gaining increased acceptance at the beginning of the 21st century. It has been shown to be more sensitive than physical examination or plain radiography. It is a quick, handy and versatile tool bringing the rheumatologist in close contact with the patient enhancing detailed integration of clinical and imaging findings. The musculoskeletal ultrasonography offers an accurate and immediate image with lower cost and higher patient acceptability in the diagnosis and follow-up of most rheumatic diseases. This paper reports the evidence for the application of musculoskeletal ultrasonography in rheumatology.
