The developments in technology have improved access to the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) in different clinical settings. Accordingly, MSUS has been applied to a wide range of musculoskeletal problems including inflammatory and degenerative diseases, sport injuries, regional pain syndromes both for clinical practice and research. In this report, we aimed to globally examine the publications on MSUS among different specialties, countries, topics. Sixteen reviewers under the umbrella of EURO-MUSCULUS (European Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography Society Group) and USPRM (Ultrasound Study Group of International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine) have evaluated approximately 15000 publications on MSUS. We believe that the results of this comparative analysis may provide a holistic snapshot as regards the utility of MSUS, not only for clinicians/academicians but also for the industry. Accordingly, while aiming to further increase their awareness, this paper would possibly guide future investments as well.
