Figure 2: On the short axis, the long head of the biceps is seen as a well-defined echogenic ovoid structure (*) cradled between the greater tuberosity laterally and the lesser tuberosity medially. The echogenic transverse band-like structure (arrows) is the transverse humeral ligament. The transverse humeral ligament along with the coracohumeral ligament is responsible for stabilizing the long head of biceps within the bicipital groove. The biceps tendon sheath surrounding the long head of biceps is visualized only in the presence of effusion
