Ultrasound advances include highresolution linear array transducers, extended field of view, tissue harmonics, compound imaging, and recently early forays into 3-D and 4-D imaging use in musculoskeletal imaging (Fig. 17). 3) Advantages/Disadvantages Ultrasound is a readily available, noninvasive multiplanar imaging modality that does not involve ionizing radiation and is well tolerated by patients. It allows 3-D and 4-D (dynamic 3-D) imaging. It is inexpensive in comparison to CT and MRI, is portable, and can image multiple anatomical regions in one sitting.
