Thumb ultrasound: Technique and pathologies

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Ultrasound is ideally suited for the assessment of complex anatomy and pathologies of the thumb. Focused and dynamic thumb ultrasound can provide a rapid real-time diagnosis and can be used for guided treatment in certain clinical situations. We present a simplified approach to scanning technique for thumb-related pathologies and illustrate a spectrum of common and uncommon pathologies encountered.

Lipoma of thumb (A-F). Antero-posterior radiograph (A) of the wrist shows a radiolucent lesion along the lateral aspect of the thumb (arrow). Short axis (B) and panoramic (C) ultrasound images show the lesion to be hyperechoic (arrow). Magnetic resonance imaging shows the lesion (arrow) to be hyperintense on axial T2 and coronal T1 (E) images with complete suppression on PD fat suppressed image (F)

Figure 19: Lipoma of thumb (A-F). Antero-posterior radiograph (A) of the wrist shows a radiolucent lesion along the lateral aspect of the thumb (arrow). Short axis (B) and panoramic (C) ultrasound images show the lesion to be hyperechoic (arrow). Magnetic resonance imaging shows the lesion (arrow) to be hyperintense on axial T2 and coronal T1 (E) images with complete suppression on PD fat suppressed image (F)

Mentions: Lipomas [Figure 19] are soft, painless, well-delineated, and mobile masses with variable echogenicity that ranges from hypoechoic to hyperchoic, related to cellular variability.[2122]
