ESSR Ultrasound Guidelines - Group Protocols

ESSR has issued technical standards for ultrasound examination of joints, including the shoulder, the elbow, the wrist, the hip, the knee and the ankle. These guidelines have been obtained by consensus of a large number of experts throughout Europe and reflect what the ESSR considers essential scanning protocols for a complete high-quality ultrasound examination in each joint. Musculoskeletal radiologists who perform ultrasound are expected to follow these guidelines with the recognition that variations from them will be required in some cases, depending on patient’s needs and available equipment. We believe these standards will improve education and practice among radiologists and appropriate use of ultrasound as a diagnostic modality of the musculoskeletal system. Such guidelines are not intended, however, to establish a legal standard of care. Looking forward to receiving your feedback.
