Abstract：Hyperuricemia (HUA) is a disorder of purine metabolism, with an increasing incidence. Long⁃term HUA can easily
induce gout, and it can easily affect the kidneys and cardiovascular system. Musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) refers to the use of
conventional ultrasound diagnostic equipment and special high⁃frequency ultrasound probes to confirm the diagnosis of human
muscles, soft tissues and skeletal diseases. MSKUS in the diagnosis and observation of gouty arthritis HUA MSKUS can more
effectively detect the intra⁃articular double⁃track sign, aggregates, tophi and bone erosion that are easy to ignore, compared with other
inspection methods, and has a certain degree in the diagnosis of gouty arthritis. Therefore, the use of MSKUS can comprehensively
evaluate the condition of HUA patients with gout. Besides, the characteristic changes of ultrasound in asymptomatic HUA patients all
occur at MPT1. Therefore, MSKUS can screen the key parts of MPT1 in asymptomatic HUA patients, which can detect and treat more
promptly and better prevent the occurrence and development of gout. MSKUS can be used to relieve the disappearance of the
dual⁃track sign in the joint during the follow⁃up treatment of gout patients, which can better evaluate its efficacy. MSKUS has many
advantages such as high sensitivity, repeatable operation, simple use, etc. Therefore, it has high application value in the diagnosis and
treatment of HUA and gout patients.
