There has been a major sea change in the care of rheumatology patients with the advent of bedside ultrasound (US). US not only offers an ionizing free form of imaging but can also evaluate the vascularity of structures without using contrast. Sonography has generated much excitement with the depiction of disease processes affecting anatomical structures, and in some cases, has changed our views of the pathophysiology. It has also enabled establishing the diagnosis when the clinical picture is unclear. In this article, the role of US in major rheumatic syndromes will be outlined with high-quality sonographic images.
