"Bedside ultrasound can be especially useful for assessing tendons — in trauma, repetitive motion injury, and suspected infection. Having a basic understanding of the normal and abnormal appearance of tendons on ultrasound will give the emergency physician an advantage when examining patients with suspected tendon injury, tendonitis, or tenosynovitis.
Here are a few tips for evaluating the tendon:
  • Use a water bath for hands and feet.
  • Be familiar with the anatomy to enable identification of the tendon in question.
  • When in doubt, assess the same location on the unaffected side."
