Comparison of the Efficiency of MRI and Ultrasound Examinations

If we can compare the efficiency of MRI and ultrasound according to our experience, then our conclusion is that ultrasound can have a bigger efficiency in these areas in comparison with MRI.

the tendon of the long head of the biceps (masterful diagnostics of exudative tenovaginitides)

the articular capsule of the glenohumeral articulation synovitides and articular hydropses

 

the acromioclavicular articulation with regarding to anatomical rates and size of this articulation, ultrasound seems to be the only method able to diagnose sufficiently clearly the acromioclavicular synovitis!!!

 

On the other hand, MRI is incomparable at diagnosis of impigement syndrome where the ultrasound examination is insufficient.
