Is musculoskeletal ultrasound helpful in diagnosing acute meniscal tears?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Ultrasound assessment, particularly using real-time spatial compound ultrasound, is effective for ruling out meniscal tears. However, ultrasound is much less effective than MRI for diagnosing a meniscal tear, and may miss other intracapsular lesions. (SOR B, based on small, prospective comparative studies.)
