Answer

Answer

Ultrasonography can be used for the evaluation of soft-tissue anatomy. [32, 33] This imaging modality has been particularly useful in evaluating ganglion cysts, tendons, and tendon sheaths. In current practice, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has largely replaced ultrasonography in the evaluation of these conditions. [34]
