Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A variety of terms that is often confusing is used to describe tendon changes at ultrasound. The classification of tendon disorders is often based on a combination of clinical and imaging findings. We present an overview. of different categories of tendon disorders where ultrasound: may contribute to the diagnosis and classification. We suggest the following categories: overuse, traumatic, inflammatory, and metabolic. The differentiation is not always possible and the importance of clinical data must be taken into account. The spectrum of tendon abnormalitie's is illustrated with clinical examples.
