Hip and groin pain is very common and ultrasound has been proven to be a useful tool in the assessment of the Hip Tendons, Ligaments, Muscles, Nerves, Synovial Recesses, Articular Cartilage, Bone Surfaces, and Joint Capsule. The goal of the ultrasound scan is to detect and localize pathological processes, and to differentiate between intra-articular and extra-articular pathology.

In patients with sports-related hip pain, ultrasound has an important role in the dynamic assessment of Snapping Iliopsoas tendon, Joint Fluid, Bursitis, Hematoma, and Para labral Cyst formation.

Potential causes of Hip Discomfort and Fever include Psoas Abscess, Prostatitis, Pelvic Inflammatory disease, and Urinary tract infections.

Ultrasound can help diagnose these conditions, allowing appropriate and timely initiation of treatment.
