Diagnostics of tibial bone fracture consolidation and non-union by ultrasound

Juris Saulgozis, Inese Pontaga

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Just after the tibial bone fracture the ultrasound velocity in fracture site significantly decreased. During the normal consolidation in the first 20 weeks after fracture the velocity quickly increased in the fracture site and near it,further the velocity changes were very slowly. For the non-union the velocity after the first 100 weeks in the fracture site did not increase, but near it decreased due to osteoporosis. The velocity in the paired bone increased due to tissue functional adaptation to the active physical loading.
