Therapeutic ultrasound science is still lame

Therapeutic ultrasound science is still lame: one of the worst cases of “garbage in, garbage out” in all of musculoskeletal medicine.

After quite a lot of procrastinating, my ultrasound article now finally features a totally overhauled evidence review…which doesn’t even budge the bottom line. I purged some old citations and added six new reviews from the last decade… which are basically all still about scamnty, crappy evidence, showing no effect at all or only trivial benefits. I feel like I could sum up the entire topic of ultrasound with one short word: MEH. 🙁
