The Anatomy of a Hip Ultrasound Scan
Musculoskeletal pain conditions of the hip are varied in their cause. Hip joint osteoarthritis a common complaint can be diagnosed with X-ray, MRI. In conjunction with a physical examination, an ultrasound scan can also be useful in that it demonstrates characteristic signs of a hip joint effusion ,inflammation and bony irregularities at the hip joint margins.
Many other hip pain conditions are caused by degenerative changes and defects to the muscles and tendons around the hip. A diagnostic hip ultrasound scan is invaluable in assessing tendon defects and planning the most appropriate treatment strategy such as physiotherapy loading exercises for the tendons or ultrasound guided injections.
Fluid filled sacs known as hip bursae can also give rise to pain around the hip and pelvis. the most common of these, the trochanteric bursa can give rise to pain and swelling over the outer aspects of the hip. An ultrasound scan can clearly visualise inflammation or chronic thickening to this bursa opening up appropriate treatment pathways.
