Abstract provided by Publisher
This article discusses the diagnostic potential of ultrasonography in a common clinical condition: periarthropathia humeroscapularis. The authors describe pathologies of the rotatory cuff, the tendon of the long head of humeral biceps, the bursa subacromialis, and the articular capsule. The advantages of ultrasonography are emphasized, such as its noninvasiveness, the possibility of performing dynamic examination, and general accessibility. The authors describe pathological changes, such as tendinitis, tenosynovitis, bursitis, tendinitis calcarea, tendinosis, degenerative changes, and partial and complete tear of the tendon. Impingement syndrome and dialysis- related amyloidosis of the shoulder are separately discussed.
