Using a novel, minimally invasive technique that uses focused ultrasound energy to treat recalcitrant lateral elbow tendinopathy, a total of 20 patients underwent treatment. All patients had diagnostic ultrasound performed and answered questionnaires for functional assessment. The majority have been followed up to 7 years post procedure. One of our radiologists, Dr P Chandra Mohan, has been working closely together with our collaborators of Orthopaedics in publishing interesting findings in The American Journal of Sports Medicine.
