Ultrasound in the diagnosis of scaphoid fractures.

Abstract

A prospective study of the possibility of confirming clinically suspected scaphoid fractures was carried out over one year. Analysis of the results suggest that ultrasound scanning of suspect scaphoid fractures is a reliable method of assessing this condition. It has one weakness in that the diagnosis is based on subjective sensation and this may at times be faulty. Our results, however, suggest that once practice in the technique has been achieved, then mistakes are rarely made.
