Ultrasound Diagnostics of Tendon Injuries in Hand Surgery

Sonography is an increasingly used examination procedure for the diagnosis of illnesses of the hand, especially of the soft tissues. Sonoanatomic assessment of the functional structures (Tab. 1) sometimes allows the exclusion of various differential diagnoses. However, this requires quite a bit of experience on the part of the examiner. The assessment of the peripheral nerves can be difficult - especially when the fingers are concerned. The technical enhancement of high-resolution transducers will surely lead to an expansion of diagnostic possibilities.
