A number of technologic developments currently reaching fruition will help to further develop tendon US imaging. Manufacturers are now starting to produce inexpensive high-resolution systems dedicated for musculoskeletal ultrasound. These are being combined with very high frequency (12-20 MHz) linear array transducers with optimized near field for demonstration of very superficial structures such as the peripheral limb juxta-articular tendons. Finally hand-held US systems with the same imaging capabilities as the current top-of-the-range system will further expand the role of ultrasound in the clinical management of patients with tendinopathies.
