Author(s): Ximena Wortsman.

Abstract:

In the latest years there has been an explosive growth in the use of ultrasound for exploring the soft tissues. Thus, the utility of sonography in the musculoskeletal field is now very well supported in literature. Moreover, this sonographic expansion has continued through the dermatologic field. The aim of this article is to review the recent advances in dermatologic ultrasound considering last-generation equipment, and assess the potential of ultrasound on rheumatic disorders that may present concomitant and challenging skin or nail lesions at some point during their clinical course.

Keywords: Dermatologic ultrasound, dermatology ultrasound, inflammatory diseases, nail ultrasound, rheumatic ultrasound, rheumatology ultrasound, skin ultrasound
