- What is the clinical effectiveness regarding the use of portable ultrasound devices for the assessment and management of patients with musculoskeletal conditions?
- What is the comparative accuracy of portable ultrasound versus MRI or fixed ultrasound devices to detect musculoskeletal conditions in patients?
- What is the cost-effectiveness of portable ultrasound for patients with musculoskeletal conditions?
Six non-randomized studies were identified regarding the clinical effectiveness and accuracy of portable ultrasound devices for assessment and management of patients with musculoskeletal conditions; no economic evaluations were identified regarding the cost-effectiveness of these devices for patients with musculoskeletal conditions.
