View educational videos of ultrasound examination technique, image acquisition and optimisation, and detection and interpretation of synovitis. An ultrasound synovitis evaluation form has also been developed specifically for RA by the TUI Steering Committee. This is downloadable from below or the training resources page.
Dr Richard Wakefield demonstrates probe positions for detecting synovitis, anatomical landmarks and demonstrates power Doppler.
While a standard site for positioning the probe is shown throughout this video, in practice, the probe is ‘swept’ across the joint. The standard site is shown, as it features defined anatomical landmarks to facilitate learning.View elbow joint resources Synovitis evaluation form
