about dynamic ultrasound findings of ulnar nerve synovial impingement
This is the case of a patient suffering for a post-traumatic olecranon bursitis with ulnar nerve entrapment symptoms, one month after an elbow contusion.
A standard plain radiograph was made immediatly after trauma, showing a small bony fragment of the olecranon cortical surface.
The Mri exam shows a gross olecranon bursitis, but the inflammatory process involving the ulnar nerve is better appreciated with the dynamic ultrasound examination.
My suggestion is always tha same… Mri and Ultrasound exams complement each other succesfully, so use both togheter in your daily practice.
