Ultrasound Anatomy of Lower Limb Muscles: A Practical Guide by Enzo Silvestri, Alessandro Muda, Davide Orlandi

By Enzo Silvestri, Alessandro Muda, Davide Orlandi

The ebook presents a entire description of the elemental ultrasound rules, general anatomy of the reduce limb muscle mass and type of muscle pressure accidents. Ultrasound photographs are coupled with anatomical schemes explaining probe positioning and scanning method for many of the muscle tissues of the thigh and leg. for every muscle, a quick clarification of standard anatomy can also be supplied, including an inventory of tips and assistance and suggestion on how you can practice the ultrasound experiment in medical perform. This e-book is a wonderful functional educating advisor for rookies and an invaluable reference for more matured sonographers.

59 Fig. 3 Lower limb position to evaluate the rectus femoris muscle Pay particular attention when assessing the attachment point of the direct tendon onto the AIIS in young patients. As the growth plate is not completely fixed, this structure is frequently involved in avulsion fracture secondary to strain injuries. Rotate the transducer by 90° to evaluate the direct tendon on the longitudinal plane (Fig. 5). Deep to the hyperechoic band representing the direct tendon, note the shadow determined by the change in orientation of the indirect tendon that descends externally and obliquely toward the upper rim of the acetabulum (Fig.

B) Caudal US axial scan which shows the iliopsoas muscle belly (Ips) with its tendon in the typical eccentric position (arrow); at this level, the femoral neurovascular bundle can be seen on the medial aspect of the iliopsoas muscle, entering the femoral triangle b Fig. 6 (a) Patient position in flexion, abduction and maximal external rotation (b) US longitudinal scan showing the distal iliopsoas tendon (circles) inserting on the lesser trochanter (LT) and some fibres of the adductor lon- gus muscle passing close to it.

34 Fig. 1 Image of feathery edema-like pattern: intramuscular high signal (arrow), with no discernible muscle fiber disruption in almost 50 % of the patients. At MR imaging, a classic “feathery” edema-like pattern may appear on fluid-sensitive sequences. Some fluid may appear in the central portion of the tendon and along the perifascial intermuscular region, without discernible disruption of muscle fibers or architectural distortion (Fig. 1). In grade II Injury, a partial tear is macroscopically evident, with some continuity of fibers at the injury site.
