Abstract

Background. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is becoming an increasingly popular clinical tool in the hands of physiatrists. Herewith, although the role of direct supervision (by an expert) is universally recognized as the core element for appropriate ultrasound training, to our best notice, its impact on ultrasonographic measurements has not been studied quantitatively in the hitherto literature.
