Ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system is paramount for physicians of different specialties. In recent years, its use has become the extension of physical examinations like using a "magnifying glass". Likewise, the eventual concept has naturally and spontaneously evolved to a "fusion" of classical physical examination and static/dynamic ultrasound imaging of the musculoskeletal system. In this regard, we deem it important to explore the current use/awareness regarding 'ultrasound examination', and to better provide insight into understanding future research spots in this field. Accordingly, this study aimed to search the global/research status of 'ultrasound examination' of the musculoskeletal system based on bibliometric and visualized analysis.
