Extensor Tendinopathy (Tennis Elbow) is a common term used to describe pathology of the forearm extensor tendons that converge to anchor the muscles to the lateral elbow. During traditional ultrasonography using the longitudinal scanning method, it is difficult to determine which component of the common extensor tendon (CET) is affected. This video presents the addition of a transverse scan to better visualize the tendons that join and form the CET. Two cases seen in our ultrasound clinic were demonstrated. The findings from the transverse scan helped to provide modifications of specific wrist and hand activities to facilitate recovery.
With the July issue of the Journal we are launching a new regular feature: the Video Gallery. The purpose of this Gallery is to combine text with video in the presentation and discussion of a topic of interest in musculoskeletal medicine. The first publication is authored by Chiang and collaborators who made a fantastic effort to write the text and produce the video in a relatively short period of time so we could include it in this issue of the Journal. This first “combined media publication” focus on the use of ultrasound for the examination of the rotator cuff and injection of the subacromial and subdeltoid bursa. Thanks to the effort of the Publisher LWW, the video can be accessed using your smartphone camera QR reader App to scan and capture the QR Code included with the print version of the article or by visiting our website at www.AJPMR.com. I hope you will appreciate this new feature and send us your comments and suggestions for future topics and use of electronic media.
