Ultrasonographic examination of plantar fasciitis: A comparison of patient positions during examination
from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research
Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a non-invasive and low-cost modality for real-time visualization of the plantar fascia. Ultrasound examination for plantar fasciitis is generally performed with the patient in a prone position, although the rational for using a prone position has not been validated. The aim of the study was to investigate if ultrasound examination in a supine position, which is more comfortable than the prone position, is valid.
