Abstract

Tendon disorders commonly cause wrist and hand disability and curtail the performance of work-related tasks. Sonography allows for cost-effective, noninvasive, and dynamic evaluation of soft tissue structures, thus representing a valuable tool for ruling out musculoskeletal disorders of the wrist and hand. Because of the complexity of the wrist joint, sonographic training and familiarity with normal and variant anatomy are needed to avoid misdiagnosis and improper treatment. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the structures representing normal findings during sonographic evaluations of the wrist and hand. The main reviews the gross anatomy and procedures that are recommended to assess the soft tissue structures of the wrist and hand, with particular emphasis given to tendons, nerves, and ligaments. In conclusion, sonography is effective in assessing the tendons of the hand and wrist and related disorders and represents a valuable tool for diagnosis.
