AREND, Carlos Frederico. Sonography of the iliotibial band: spectrum of findings. Radiol Bras [online]. 2014, vol.47, n.1, pp.33-37. ISSN 1678-7099.

Iliotibial band lesions constitute a potential source of discomfort and are frequently confounded with other conditions which cause pain on the lateral aspect of the hip, thigh and knee. Ultrasonography is usually regarded as a first-line imaging modality in the assessment of such conditions because of its excellent diagnostic accuracy, low cost and wide availability. The correct identification of the structure involved in the production of symptoms leads to an appropriate management and to a higher probability of resolution of the clinical complaint. The present article is aimed at reviewing the different sonographic presentations of iliotibial band syndromes.

Keywords : Sonography; Iliotibial band; Iliotibial band friction syndrome.
