ABSTRACT This article summarizes key MR imaging findings in common athletic elbow injuries including little leaguer's elbow, Panner disease, osteochondritis dissecans, olecranon stress fracture, occult fracture, degenerative osteophyte formation, flexor-pronator strain, ulnar collateral ligament tear, lateral ulnar collateral ligament and radial collateral ligament tear, lateral epicondylitis, medial epicondylitis, biceps tear, bicipitoradial bursitis, triceps tear, olecranon bursitis, ulnar neuropathy, posterior interosseous nerve syndrome, and radial tunnel syndrome. The article also summarizes important technical considerations in elbow MR imaging that enhance image quality and contribute to the radiologist's success.

    ABSTRACT: 肱二頭肌橈骨滑囊是位於肱二頭肌遠端肌腱與橈骨結節之間。慢性滑囊炎在肱二頭肌橈骨滑囊並不常見,主要的成因是重覆性的機械性創傷或過度使用。其他原因包括結核病,風濕性疾病的自體免疫並發症和滑膜軟骨瘤病。準確的診斷需要影像掃描檢查,有時並需要組織學研究。滑囊抽吸與類固醇注射等保守性療法可以治療肱二頭肌橈骨滑囊炎。滑囊切除手術在以下的情況適用:保守治療無效,在滑囊抽吸與類固醇注射後滑囊再次腫大並引起疼痛丶感染性的滑囊炎丶神經被滑囊壓迫做成神經功能缺損丶肘關節的屈伸受到滑囊限制丶肱二頭肌腱退變或其他的功能障礙。
