    Twenty-five surgically confirmed soft-tissue lesions of the hand were examined prospectively by real-time ultrasound. Use of sonography enabled a reliable diagnosis of the cystic or solid nature of soft-tissue lesions, an accurate estimation of the volume, and precise three-dimensional localization of the abnormality. Sonography also facilitated the location of foreign bodies. Assessment of anatomic relationships of these lesions to tendons and surrounding structures by realtime sonography during palpation, flexion, and/or extension also aided in the surgical approach.
