Abstract

The authors studied a group of spinal cord injured patients and cranial trauma patients to identify the heterotopic bone formation (HBF) by ultrasound investigation. Our findings show a high specificity of ultrasound in early identification of HBF, also in comparison with laboratory data (serum alkaline phosphatase), radionuclide bone imaging and radiographic findings.
