Epicondylitis, commonly referred to as “tennis elbow”, manifests as localised pain in the lateral epicondyle (tendinopathy), with reduced strength when gripping and supinating the wrist and fingers. Among the imaging, assessment tools, both ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are able to identify and characterise the degenerative degree of the tendon structure. Radiography is another tool, but it is only useful to highlight the presence of calcifications adjacent to the epicondyle and radi head.
