Diagnosis of ligament and musculotendinous unit injury and overuse represents an increasingly important clinical problem in the athletic population. A review of recent literature on diagnostic ultrasound in sports medicine is presented. There is limited, but increasing, objective proof to support the use of diagnostic ultrasound using in common sports disorders.
