Use of two-dimensional real-time ultrasonography for diagnosing contracture and strain of the infraspinatus muscle in a dog. Academic Article uri icon


  • A strain injury to the infraspinatus muscle was a potential cause of forelimb lameness in a dog. Ultrasonography was used for evaluation of infraspinatus muscle injury. The ultrasonographic appearance of a typical infraspinatus muscle, contracture of an infraspinatus muscle, acute strain of an infraspinatus muscle, and progression of healing of the infraspinatus muscle are described.
