Since the early 1990's, ultrasound through the development of high-resolution probes in the musculoskeletal system has become more and more important. The development of ultrasound technology has gone hand in hand with the development of know how in different clinical fields, so that diagnostic ultrasound has now become an indispensable diagnostic tool in orthopedics/traumatology, rheumatology and neurology. The following article will arouse curiosity and interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound.
