Advanced Imaging of Ulnar Wrist Pain.
Ulnar-sided wrist pain can be a diagnostic challenge for clinicians and radiologists. The ulnar wrist has complex morphology and is composed of many small bone and soft tissue structures. Within these structures, a wide variety of pathologic conditions can occur. To successfully diagnose and treat these pathologic conditions, clinicians and radiologists must have a strong understanding of the advanced imaging techniques available to them. In this review, the authors present a brief review of the normal ulnar wrist anatomy, discuss the differential diagnosis of ulnar-sided wrist pain, and examine the indications for different advanced imaging modalities.
