Tenovaginitis during the Ultrasound Examination Transversal Section

A presence of a liquid along the long head of the biceps, i.e. tenovaginitis. This finding is more frequent at a rheumatoid patient. The ultrasound finding is highly specified and sensitive, and it is possible to rely on it completely. The transversal section at the ultrasound is thought to have better sensitivity for finding the liquid than MRI. From this section an aspiration of the exudate is also the best one. In the area of the tendon a visible circular hypoechogenic focus occurs. A luxation of the tendon of the long head of the biceps happens medially by big exudates.
