Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound
An MSK Ultrasound is a dynamic imaging solution that allows you to see, in real time, the state of a patient’s bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons and cartilage. When a patient is in pain but cannot locate the source, an MSK Ultrasound can provide a clear picture of the cause. For instance, you can see a tendon tear move or pinpoint the dislocation of a ligament.
An MSK Ultrasound utilizes both visual and audio to locate points of pain in real time. Using a small probe to transmit sound waves, technicians can hear echoes when the waves bounce off internal body structures. Going beyond just a photograph, this type of ultrasound uses these sound waves to show blood flow and muscle movement – all without the use of radiation.
More accessible – provides the ability to do the reads in any office that is equipped for ultrasounds.
More economical – Less expensive than an MRI for both out-of-pocket and insurance costs.
Better Patient Care – An MSK Ultrasound will not interfere with a patient’s pacemaker or cause discomfort from being put into a smaller space, as with an MRI or CT scan.
