Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article provides a brief review of the normal osseous, ligamentous, muscular, and neurovascular imaging anatomy of the elbow. Special attention is paid to the normal structures that may simulate pathology, as well as anatomical variants that may lead to pathology. This review will help clarify distinctions between normal anatomy and abnormal anatomy, as well as elucidate pathological consequences of a seemingly normal structure.
