Ultrasound has been extensively applied to the diagnosis of and guided interventions for knee disorders. However, although it is commonly affected during sports injuries, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is not usually incorporated in the majority of ultrasound scanning protocols. In the past, because of its oblique trajectory and deeper location, the ACL was considered to be a challenging structure for ultrasound imaging. Owing to advances in ultrasound technology and knowledge of knee sono-anatomy, an increasing number of studies are investigating the clinical value of ultrasound in the diagnosis and management of ACL injuries. In this regard, the present review aims to elaborate on the sono-anatomy of the ACL, to summarize the evidence for ultrasound imaging for ACL lesions and to investigate whether it is useful in the pre-operative preparation and post-operative follow-up of ACL reconstruction.
