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.
Dear Paolo, thank you to share here your really interesting experience.
Surely I’ll use in my daily practice to improve my examination.
See you soon
Thank you for your appreciation Emanuele
