Palmar transverse scan of MCP joint
Watch the video
The patient sits, hand supinated, arm supported. The probe is placed transversely over the metacarpophalangeal joint. The flexor tendon and volar plate lie closely together above the metacarpal head covered in cartilage. Identification of the flexor tendon is aided by tilting the probe to demonstrate an isotropy in the tendon but not the volar plate.
