Ultrasound of the shoulder and elbow.

Author information

  • 1Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, United Kingdom.


Ultrasound examination of the shoulder and elbow requires careful technique, appreciation of normal anatomy, and appropriate high-end equipment. Ultrasound provides detailed diagnostic information. Its accuracy is comparable to that of MRI in the assessment of the rotator cuff. Ultrasound is cheaper than MRI and is preferred by patients.
