Imaging in carpal instability

...the added value of MSK ultrasound

Dynamic MSK ultrasound may demonstrate dynamic instability and kinematic dysfunction in case of a scapholunate ligament tear. The reported sensitivity for MSK ultrasound diagnosis of tears of the dorsal band of the scapholunate ligament varies from 46%–100%, with specificities of 92%–100%. In the image at the bottom of this post, you can see how the scapholunate ligament should be scanned with MSK ultrasound as proposed by the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology.
