msk sonography

Minho Park, Ji Seon Park, Sung Eun Ahn, Kyung Nam Ryu, So Young Park, Wook Jin
Diabetes mellitus (DM) can accompany many musculoskeletal (MSK) diseases. It is difficult to distinguish the DM-related MSK diseases based on clinical symptoms alone. Sonography is frequently used as a first imaging study for these MSK symptoms and is helpful to differentiate the various DM-related MSK diseases. This pictorial essay focuses on sonographic findings of various MSK diseases that can occur in diabetic patients.

The following sports ultrasound (SPORTS US) curriculum is a revision of the curriculum developed by the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) in 2010. Several changes have been made to the curriculum with the primary aim of providing a pathway by which a sports medicine fellow can obtain sufficient SPORTS US training to become proficient in the core competencies of SPORTS US. The core competencies of SPORTS US are outlined in the learning objectives section of this document. The term "SPORTS US" was purposefully chosen rather than "musculoskeletal ultrasound" (MSK US) because it was recognized by the panel that the evolving field of SPORTS US encompasses non-MSK applications of ultrasound such as the FAST examination (focused assessment with sonography for trauma)...

The non-invasive assessment of medial elbow pain in throwers can be challenging. Valgus stress transmitted to the elbow during the late cocking and acceleration phases of the throwing motion can result in injury to the medial ligamentous structures of the elbow, bony surfaces, and common tendon of the forearm flexors. The utilization of musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound in combination with the Telos Stress Device (TSD) (Austin & Associates Fallston, MD) can be an alternate quick assessment when radiography is not be available...

Renal cystic disease comprises a mixed group of heritable, developmental, and acquired disorders. Because of their diverse etiology, histology, and clinical presentation, no single scheme of classification has gained acceptance. Conditions include autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, acquired renal cystic disease, medullary sponge kidney, autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease, multicystic dysplastic kidney, medullary cystic disease, tuberous sclerosis, cysts of the renal sinus, and von Hippel-Lindau's disease...

Medullary sponge kidney is reported in six children aged 2-18 years. One child was asymptomatic; the others had hematuria or a urine-concentrating defect. Renal function and size were otherwise normal, as was liver function. The diagnosis was made at excretory urography according to criteria established in adults. Sonography revealed hyperechogenic pyramids, at first at the periphery, later generalized. Computed tomography proved this to be calcium. Medullary sponge kidney is rare but exists in children. Sonography is very sensitive to the pyramidal nephrocalcinosis that complicates this disease and explains the frequent presenting symptom of hematuria in these children...

The great diversity of the various forms of renal cystic disease results in a formidable diagnostic challenge to the roentgenologist and clinician alike. Until recently, adequate diagnosis required surgical exploration or biopsy, or both, to establish benignity or to confirm the suspicion of a more esoteric form of renal cystic disease. Now, however, with refinements in excretory urography with tomography, bolus and infusion nephrotomography, selective renal arteriography, percutaneous aspiration of cysts, and sonography, the accuracy of a clinical diagnosis of cystic disease has approached that of surgical exploration and biopsy...
