The Challenges of Measuring in vivo Knee Collateral Ligament Strains using Quantitative Ultrasound KU Leuven
Inter-rater reliability of an ultrasound protocol to evaluate the anterolateral ligament of the knee Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Objectives: The aim of this study was to validate an ultrasound protocol for evaluating the anterolateral ligament of the knee. Methods: A Thiel technique cadaveric specimen was used to validate an optimal scanning position and develop an ultrasound protocol to evaluate the anterolateral ligament. Three musculoskeletal sonographers acquired short-and long-axis images of the anterolateral ligament in 36 knees from 18 healthy volunteers. ...
Ultrasound of the elbow with emphasis on detailed assessment of ligaments, tendons, and nerves Vrije Universiteit Brussel KU Leuven
The high resolution and dynamic capability of ultrasound make it an excellent tool for assessment of superficial structures. The ligaments, tendons, and nerves about the elbow can be fully evaluated with ultrasound. The medial collateral ligament consists of an anterior and posterior band that can easily be identified. The lateral ligament complex consists of the radial collateral ligament, ulnar insertion of the annular ligament, and lateral ...
Validated Ultrasound Speckle Tracking Method for Measuring Strains of Knee Collateral Ligaments In-Situ during Varus/Valgus Loading KU Leuven

Ankle and midfoot ligaments Vrije Universiteit Brussel
We present a detailed overview of anatomical and US features of ankle and midfoot ligaments based on our own dissections and cadaver studies as well as US imaging in cadavers and volunteers. The ligament anatomy about the ankle and midfoot is complex. Most ligaments are superficial and hence very well accessible for US. US technique to obtain optimal visualization however is difficult and requires a learning curve. We discuss US technique in ...
Ultrasound of the knee with emphasis on the detailed anatomy of anterior, medial, and lateral structures Vrije Universiteit Brussel
To describe the detailed ultrasound anatomy of the anterior, medial, and lateral aspects of the knee and present the ultrasound examination technique used.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
We present ultrasound using images of patients, volunteer subjects, and cadaveric specimens. We correlate ultrasound images with images of anatomical sections and dissections.
The distal quadriceps tendon is made up of ...
Ultrasound anatomy of the fingers Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Many anatomical details and variants occur in the finger tendons and soft tissue structures. These may lead to misdiagnosis if the radiologist is not well aware of them. We discuss the midhand extensor tendons, dorsal hood, junctura tendinea, conjoint tendons, transverse retinacular ligament, triangular ligament as well as central and distal slip anatomy and ultrasound correlation. The dorsal hood is an important structure to center the ...
