about ultrasound monitoring of peroneal fracture
Two months after a peroneal fracture the x-rays show a regular healing but the patient feels pain: why?
I suggest you to always use both ultrasound and Mri imaging to better evaluate the correct healing of the fracture.
In this professional football player is also evident a gross perilesional edema involving the peroneal muscles togheter with the peroneal neurovascular bundle.
The dynamic ultrasound exam allows to better appreciate all the structures involved in this pathological picture; just a little reminder: high sensibility but 0% specificity of the ultrasound imaging in the study of cortical bone.
