In this investigation, 28 tendons (21 patients) with a painful nodule located at the 2–6 cm level in the tendon, and 20 normal (pain-free) tendons, were examined with grey-scale ultrasonography combined with colour Doppler examination. In all tendons with a painful nodule, but not in any of the normal pain-free tendons… CONTINUE READING
