The aim of this paper is to present a treatment for scars based on percutaneous traction. This is a structural technique in which movements are performed against the barriers detected in different planes. The stages of this technique are described in detail along with the results after applying it to a postarthroscopic scar on a knee. The active and passive mobility of femoro-tibial and femoro-patellar articulations improved substantially after the treatment, as verified by signs such as pain relief, greater flexibility, disappearance of inflammation and a major recovery of tissue elasticity...

In the past 2 decades, sonoelastography has been progressively used as a tool to help evaluate soft-tissue elasticity and add to information obtained with conventional gray-scale and Doppler ultrasonographic techniques. Recently introduced on clinical scanners, shear-wave elastography (SWE) is considered to be more objective, quantitative, and reproducible than compression sonoelastography with increasing applications to the musculoskeletal system. SWE uses an acoustic radiation force pulse sequence to generate shear waves, which propagate perpendicular to the ultrasound beam, causing transient displacements...

The incidence of segmental testicular infarction (STI) is very low. Such a disorder most often affects young men. The most common symptom is sudden testicular pain. We report 6 cases of men diagnosed with STI. Clinical examination, blood test, urine analysis, and ultrasound examination with colour Doppler were performed. Furthermore, tissue sonoelastography or MRI was performed in selected patients. All men underwent surgical exploration. In all but one man, the affected testis was preserved. Although STI is a rare condition, it should be taken into account if testicular pain prior to suspicious ultrasound imaging occurs...

The myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is considered the most common musculoskeletal condition. The lumbopelvic pain (LPP) is established as one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal disorders. Nevertheless, previous research has not yet studied the contractibility changes by tensiomyography between myofascial trigger point (MTrP) types and normal tissue. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the tensiomyography, sonoelastography, and pressure pain threshold (PPT) differences between the palpation area of active and latent MTrPs with regards to control points in the lumbar erector spinae muscles of subjects with LPP...

We studied the correlation between corticospinal signaling and neuromuscular properties in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Corticospinal signaling was evaluated using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Neuromuscular properties were quantified using Hoffmann reflex (H-reflex), sonoelastography, clinical measurements, and isokinetic measures. In particular, we determined the relationship between the TMS parameters of the ankle joint and the neuromuscular features of ankle extensors and flexors as well as popular clinical measures of gait speed, endurance, balance and mobility...

We aimed to study the relationship between neuromuscular abnormalities associated with spasticity and gait impairments in spastic children with hemiplegia cerebral palsy (CP). Neuromuscular abnormalities of the tibialis anterior and medial gastrocnemius muscles of the spastic ankle were quantified using sonoelastography with two major features; i.e. entropy and histogram ratio of sonoelastography images. Gait impairments were evaluated in the gait laboratory using motion capture system, and the spatial and temporal features were extracted...

CLINICAL ISSUE: In the daily clinical routine characterization of focal lesions using native B‑mode classical ultrasound and color Doppler can be difficult or insufficient; therefore, additional diagnostic information must be taken into consideration. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Standard radiological methods in the daily clinical routine include native B‑mode ultrasound and color Doppler ultrasound. METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: Using sonoelastography it is possible to evaluate and characterize tissue properties and focal lesions regarding their stiffness to acquire additional information on a noninvasive basis...

This study addresses a topic that was previously unaddressed in the literature: the normal sonographic appearance of the Hoffa's fat pad (HFP) in young, asymptomatic subjects. The aim of the study is to describe the sonoanatomical features of HFP, including its echostructure, echogenicity, elasticity, and vascularization, in subjects without knee pathology. Knees of healthy subjects were examined with grayscale ultrasound (US) to determine the sonographic characteristics of the HFP. Echogenicity was assessed by pixel intensity quantification...

The high frequency of intestinal strictures in patients with Crohn's disease and the different treatment approaches specific for each type of stenosis make the differentiation between fibrotic and inflammatory strictures crucial in management of the disease. However, there is no standardized approach to evaluate and discriminate intestinal strictures, and until now, there was no established cross-sectional imaging modality to detect fibrosis. New techniques, such as contrast-enhanced ultrasound and sonoelastography allow the assessment of vascularization and mechanical properties of stenotic bowel tissue, respectively...

OBJECTIVE: Currently, there is a lack of objective means to quantify myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) and their core features. Our research compares (1) MTrPs and surrounding myofascial tissue using two-dimensional grayscale ultrasound (2DGSUS) and vibration sonoelastography (VSE); (2) the accuracy of both modes in visualizing MTrPs; (3) 'active' and 'latent' MTrPs, using VSE; and (4) the accuracy of both modes in visualizing deep and superficially located MTrPs. METHODS: Fifty participants with more than two MTrPs in their quadratus lumborum, longissimus thoracis, piriformis, and gluteus medius muscles were assigned to an active MTrP (low back pain) group or a latent (currently pain free) MTrP group...

REVIEW
Naomi Winn, Radhesh Lalam, Victor Cassar-Pullicino
Ultrasound is an essential modality within musculoskeletal imaging, with the recent addition of elastography. The elastic properties of tissues are different from the acoustic impedance used to create B mode imaging and the flow properties used within Doppler imaging, hence elastography provides a different form of tissue assessment. The current role of ultrasound elastography in the musculoskeletal system will be reviewed, in particular with reference to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue tumours...
