Optimizing Treatment of Patellar Tendon Injuries With Ultrasound Imaging
After watching this activity, jointly provided with the American Physical Therapy Association [APTA], you should be able to:
- Recognize the sonographic signature of healthy and injured patellar tendon (including the quadriceps tendon, at the proximal and distal insertions to the tibia, and the patella);
- Evaluate and measure patella tendon structure and affiliated muscles;
- Explain how ultrasound imaging can help in treatment planning and progression;
- Describe how ultrasound imaging can help with differential diagnosis in patients with patellar tendon injury; and
- Recognize how shear wave elastography is used in tendon injury.
