The second ELADIS newsletter has been edited. As in the first newsletter, new referencespublished between july 2011 and end of January 2012 are classified considering their main subject (Equine versus Farm animal; MRI - CT - Nuclear medicine versus conventional imaging:radiography - ultrasonography). A section “others” is also added where papers present interesting diagnostic imaging findings. In each issue, it was also decided to present some human references on a transversal topic. In the first newsletter, the subject was the ultrasonographic evaluation of muscular sports related injuries. The subject of this second newsletter is the ultrasound elastography of the human locomotor system for going further in the new trends of locomotor ultrasonography.
