abstract

  • Ultrasound is a valuable imaging modality for evaluation of patients presenting with wrist pain. An important advantage is the ability to correlate the site of pain or discomfort with the underlying sonographic appearance. The capacity to dynamically assess the wrist and use the contralateral asymptomatic wrist for comparison purposes are strengths of ultrasound as a diagnostic tool. This pictorial review deals with the sonographic assessment of the commonly encountered wrist pathologies.
