In the past years, ultrasound imaging has become an integral element of the diagnostic process in rheumatic diseases. It enables the identification of a range of inflammatory changes in joint cavities, sheaths and bursae, and allows their activity to be assessed. In 2012, experts of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology prepared recommendations concerning the role of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal diseases. Ultrasound was considered the method of choice in imaging peripheral synovitis. Moreover, ultrasound imaging has been popularized thanks to the new classification criteria for rheumatoid arthritis issued by the American College of Rheumatology and European League Against Rheumatism in 2010. They underline the role of ultrasound imaging in the detection of articular inflammatory changes that are difficult to assess unambiguously in the clinical examination. These criteria have become the basis for recommendations prepared by experts from the European League Against Rheumatism concerning medical imaging in rheumatoid arthritis. Nine of ten recommendations concern ultrasonography which is relevant in detecting diseases, predicting their progression and treatment response, monitoring disease activity and identifying remission. In the new criteria concerning polymyalgia rheumatica from 2012, an ultrasound scan of the shoulder and pelvic girdle was considered an alternative to clinical assessment. Moreover, the relevance of ultrasonography in the diagnosis and monitoring of peripheral spondyloarthropathies was widely discussed in 2014 during the meeting of the European League Against Rheumatism in Paris.

Badanie ultrasonograficzne stało się w ostatnich latach integralnym elementem diagnostyki chorób reumatycznych. Umożliwia rozpoznanie spektrum zmian zapalnych w jamach stawów, pochewkach i kaletkach wraz z oceną ich aktywności. W 2012 roku eksperci Europejskiego Towarzystwa Radiologii Mięśniowo-Szkieletowej opracowali rekomendacje dotyczące roli badań ultrasonograficznych w diagnostyce chorób układu mięśniowo-szkieletowego. Ultrasonografię uznano za metodę z wyboru w obrazowaniu zapalenia błony maziowej stawów obwodowych. Do upowszechnienia badania ultrasonograficznego przyczyniło się ponadto ustanowienie w 2010 roku nowych kryteriów klasyfikowania reumatoidalnego zapalenia stawów według Amerykańskiego Kolegium Reumatologicznego i Europejskiej Ligi do Walki z Reumatyzmem, w których podkreślono rolę ultrasonografii w identyfikacji zmian zapalnych w stawach trudnych do jednoznacznej oceny klinicznej. Kryteria te stały się podstawą do sformułowania przez ekspertów Europejskiej Ligi do Walki z Reumatyzmem zaleceń dotyczących wykorzystania badań obrazowych w reumatoidalnym zapaleniu stawów. Dziewięć z dziesięciu rekomendacji dotyczy ultrasonografii, która ma znaczenie w rozpoznawaniu chorób, przewidywaniu ich progresji i odpowiedzi na leczenie, monitorowaniu aktywności choroby oraz określeniu remisji. W nowych kryteriach polimialgii reumatycznej z 2012 roku ujęto badanie ultrasonograficzne stawów obręczy barkowej i biodrowej jako alternatywę oceny klinicznej. Podkreśla się również znaczenie ultrasonografii w diagnostyce i monitorowaniu aktywności spondyloartropatii obwodowej, co szeroko dyskutowano na zjeździe Europejskiej Ligi do Walki z Reumatyzmem w Paryżu w 2014 roku.
