BACKGROUND: Rehabilitative ultrasound Imaging (RUSI) is increasingly used in the management of musculoskeletal conditions as it provides an objective measure of muscle function while being less invasive than needle electromyography. While research has documented the ability to reliably measure trunk muscles in patients with back pain, no study to date has used RUSI to quantify infraspinatus muscle function in patients with shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS). HYPOTHESIS/PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the intra-rater and inter-rater reliability of measuring infraspinatus muscle thickness with RUSI and to compare such measures during resting versus contracted muscle states and in the symptomatic versus asymptomatic shoulders in patients with SIS...

Shoulder pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal conditions encountered in primary care and specialty orthopedic clinic settings. Although magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is typically the modality of choice for evaluating the soft-tissue structures of the shoulder, ultrasonography (US) is becoming an important complementary imaging tool in the evaluation of superficial soft-tissue structures such as the rotator cuff, subacromial-subdeltoid bursa, and biceps tendon. The advantages of US driving its recent increased use include low cost, accessibility, and capability for real-time high-resolution imaging that enables dynamic assessment and needle guidance...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are both capable of diagnosing full-thickness rotator cuff tears. However, it is unknown which imaging modality is more accurate and precise in evaluating the characteristics of full-thickness rotator cuff tears in a surgical population. This study reviewed 114 patients who underwent arthroscopic repair of a full-thickness rotator cuff tear over a 1-year period. Of these patients, 61 had both preoperative MRI and ultrasound for review. Three musculoskeletal radiologists evaluated each ultrasound and MRI in a randomized and blinded fashion on 2 separate occasions...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

BACKGROUND: Subacromial space (SS) narrowing may result in unsafe contact of rotator cuff tendons and bursa with the acromion, possibly promoting rotator cuff pathologies and pain. We measured SS in asymptomatic subjects after three movements employed for shoulder muscles' training. PARTICIPANTS AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Twenty-five males (age 24±5years; stature 175±8 cm; body mass 74±12 kg) underwent SS ultrasound evaluation while executing with (WL) and without (NL) 4-kg load: 90° shoulder abduction (SA) without humerus rotation (90°neutral ); 90° SA maximal humeral external rotation (90°er ); maximum SA (above 90°) during upright row (UR)...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the accuracy of high resolution ultrasound (USG) and MRI in the diagnosis of rotator cuff tears (RCT) and to determine if high resolution USG compares favorably in sensitivity and specificity to MRI in the diagnosis of rotator cuff injury. MATERIAL/METHODS: In this prospective comparative study, 40 patients with clinically suspected rotator cuff tears underwent both ultrasound and MRI of the shoulder. Out of these 40 patients, 31 patients who had positive findings for rotator cuff tears on ultrasound and/or MRI were finally included in the study while the remaining 9 patients with negative or unrelated findings were excluded...

REVIEW
Evan Peck, Elena Jelsing, Kentaro Onishi
Tendinopathy is increasingly recognized as an important cause of musculoskeletal pain and disability. Tendinopathy is thought to be principally a degenerative process, rather than inflammatory as was traditionally believed. Consequently, traditional tendinopathy treatments focused solely on decreasing inflammation have often been ineffective or even harmful. The advancement of ultrasonography as for guidance of outpatient musculoskeletal procedures has facilitated the development of novel percutaneous procedures for the treatment of tendinopathy, mostly by using mechanical intervention to stimulate regeneration...
