Ultrasound is a quick and very safe examination. It is very helpful in diagnosing so called extra-articular problems ( outside the joint) within soft tissue ( ligaments, tendons, muscles, bursae, nerves, joint capsule). It can also highlight issues in superficial bone structures ( cortical changes).
