This non-invasive, dynamic diagnostic tool has revolutionized the way healthcare professionals evaluate and diagnose conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, particularly around the elbow joint. Here, we delve into the intricacies of elbow ultrasound and MSK imaging, exploring its applications, benefits, and what patients can expect during an ultrasound scan of the elbow.
