Medial longitudinal scan of the elbow in extension
Watch the video
The patient sits, elbow extended, and leans toward the side to be examined. This makes the medial epicondyle more accessible to the probe. The probe is placed longitudinally with the proximal end over the epicondyle. Skin, subcutaneous fatty tissue, common flexor origin, epicondyle and humerus, and ulna are visualised.
