Ultrasound examination (US) plays an essential role in my daily practice of a hand surgeon. It helps find answers to numerous questions concerning the morphology, quality and structure of normal soft tissues, such as tendons, ligaments, elements of the joint cavities, as well as their pathologic changes, including solid tumors, ganglions, hypertrophy of the affected structures, post-traumatic injuries and disease-related damage.
