Abstract

Over the last years, musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) has been increasingly integrated by rheumatologists into clinical practice. Nowadays, it is considered an important imaging modality for the diagnosis, monitoring, and prognosis of various rheumatic diseases, along with its role in the guidance of interventional procedures. Formal training is needed to ensure a skilled and safe MSUS practice. Data regarding the use of MSUS by Portuguese rheumatologists is, however, lacking. Herein, we present a study on the current state of practice and training of MSUS in Portugal.
