The article discusses the recent research on use of musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) in pediatric rheumatology. It states that the use of MSUS in pediatric rheumatology has started to increase in recent years. It cites research literature which shows that superiority of MSUS over physical examination and other imaging methods, including, suitable for examination of children of all ages, lower cost, ease of accessibility, non-invasiveness, lack of sedation, and scope of assessing multiple locations in a singe session.
