Evaluation of Role of USG as a First Line Investigation in Non-Traumatic Lesions of Musculoskeletal System

Anjana Trivedi [10] | Krupa Dabhi [2] | Shivanand Kakanaki


Abstract: Non-traumatic musculoskeletal pathologies frequently present in clinical practice, with ultrasonography USG emerging as a primary imaging modality due to its accessibility, real-time capabilities, cost-effectiveness, and absence of ionizing radiation. This study examines the accuracy of USG in diagnosing superficial soft tissue tumors, highlighting its strengths and limitations. Through a review of 100 patients with musculoskeletal soft tissue swellings, this study emphasizes the need for standardization in USG techniques to minimize machine-related, operator, and interpretive errors. Findings indicate that USG shows high sensitivity and specificity in identifying various soft tissue lesions, though it remains operator-dependent and susceptible to artifacts. Histopathological correlation confirmed USGs reliability in diagnosing lipomas, vascular lesions, and ganglion cysts, among others. The study underscores the importance of adequate training and consistent use of USG protocols to enhance diagnostic accuracy.
