Over the last few years, a large number of studies have emphasized the fundamental role of ultrasonography (US) in the clinical evaluation of patients affected by rheumatic disorders. However, not all rheumatic diseases have been studied by US. To date, very few reports exist on the use of US in the assessment of articular, periarticular structures and blood vessels in vasculitis. In this review we provide an overview of the current data regarding the role of US in vasculitis. Sonographic evaluation of cardiac or renal involvement in these disorders will not be covered.

Abstract

Over the last few years, a large number of studies have emphasized the fundamental role of ultrasonography (US) in the clinical evaluation of patients affected by rheumatic disorders. However, not all rheumatic diseases have been studied by US. To date, very few reports exist on the use of US in the assessment of articular, periarticular structures and blood vessels in vasculitis. In this review we provide an overview of the current data regarding the role of US in vasculitis. Sonographic evaluation of cardiac or renal involvement in these disorders will not be covered.
