Ultrasound Examination of the Long Head of the Biceps

From an outline of pathologic states in the area of the long head of the biceps we have mentioned above, the most suitable method for differential diagnostics is the ultrasound examination which can confirm the pathology of the long head of the biceps quite reliably with a big probability, or it can  direct us to look for other diagnosis.

we examine the tendon at two levels in the longitudinal and transversal ones

 

 In the longitudinal section we examine a continuity and a structure of the tendon and its sheath

 In the transversal section we examine, except the tendon, a tendinous sheath and a relation of the tendon to the bicipital groove (dislocation)
