Middle) Longitudinal grayscale ultrasound shows the biceps tendon at the elbow. With a torn biceps tendon, a bulge in the arm ("Popeye" muscle) may appear. (Bottom) Longitudinal grayscale ultrasound shows the biceps tendon just distal to the elbow. The biceps tendon flattens and rotates 90° as it approaches the insertion into the posterior aspect of the radial tuberosity. The distal biceps tendon is best visualized on longitudinal section with the forearm fully supinated. To see the insertional area of distal biceps tendon, fully pronate the forearm and flex the elbow with transducer placed posteriorly over the radial tuberosity.

This is an area prone to injury during contact sports. Fortunately, there is no neurovascular bundle in the area that would be exposed to injury. (Middle) Transverse grayscale ultrasound shows the anterolateral section of the midarm. Both the biceps muscle and brachia/is muscle may be prone to overuse muscle injury if too vigorous exercise is undertaken. The biceps muscle may appear echogenic if the transducer is aligned at an angle to the transverse plane. (Bottom) Transverse grayscale ultrasound shows the anterolateral aspect of the distal arm.
