Presentation: An Ultrasound Journey Around the Midfoot and Its Complexity

Conventionally, the foot has been divided into three main anatomic areas: the hindfoot, the midfoot, and the forefoot.
Although midfoot pathology is less common than that affecting the hindfoot and forefoot, it is crucial to understand and be familiar with the intricate anatomy of this region.

As technology progresses, high-resolution ultrasound has become increasingly important in the assessment of a variety of conditions of the midfoot affecting tendons and their retinacula, ligaments, intrinsic muscles, neurovascular structures, bones, joints, and other regional soft tissues.

Knowledge of the basic ultrasound anatomy and scanning technique of the midfoot is essential for accurate image analysis and interpretation.

Presentation: Hi-Resolution Ultrasound of Wrist Ligaments

Wrist ligament injuries are common in daily practice, especially after traumas, and can cause chronic disabilities, especially in athletes. Hi-resolution ultrasound is often required to diagnose soft tissue abnormalities as it is a widely available technique, and recent advances in technology have improved its diagnosis accuracy.

However, a good knowledge of anatomic ligaments and a correct scanning technique are mandatory to allow a precise diagnosis.

This presentation aims to remind the audience of the main ligamentous structures of the wrist, describe tricks and tips for assessing them with the most recent probes, and discuss the strengths and limits of ultrasound.
