Anserine bursa, also known as intertendinous bursa, is an inflammatory condition of bursa of the conjoined insertion of the sartorius, gracilis and semitendinosus. It is located at the proximal medial aspect of the Knee, two inches below the medial knee joint line between the pes anserinus tendons
The anserine bursa is a fluid-filled vesicle. It secretes synovial fluid in order to reduce friction between tissues, and also works as a cushion for bones, tendons and muscles.
Ultrasound provides very accurate information about variations in the anserine bursa and the saphenous nerve. It can be a reliable guide to facilitate approaches to the medial knee for diagnostic and therapeutic objectives.
Using a high-frequency Ultrasound Scanner is highly necessary for the assessment of anserine bursa. Which, is a significant task in enhancing neuraxial and peripheral nerve blockades and joint injection accuracy and effectiveness by both lowering the complication rate and improving our anatomical awareness.
For example, The Color Doppler WiFi Linear Ultrasound Scanner SIFULTRAS-5.17 has a frequency of 4-12 MHz, offer the ability to diagnose and treat patients sooner and with more accuracy.
SIFULTRAS-5.17 has also an enhanced processing capacity by providing a comprehensive clinical solution. It provides the physicians with an easier preset operation, 32/64 Physical Channels, a Self-developed algorithmic platform, and a 32 per-point emission and focus. Plus its Wi-Fi portable connection and a remote diagnosis and education.
Also, the Wireless Mini-Linear Ultrasound Scanner SIFULTRAS-3.54 Color Doppler is highly recommended to our orthopedist clients. Which allows the medical professionals to control the depth and assess the depth of the needle. It can be used to help diagnose and treat the medial portion of the knee as a valuable and quick tool.
Ultrasound is highly sensitive and specific at identifying the amount of inflammation present. This can help with predicting how long the patient condition will take to resolve and whether or not an ultrasound-guided injection is required.
