Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound
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, cartilage and nerves. When a patient is in pain but cannot locate the source, MSK Ultrasound can provide a clear picture of the cause. For instance, you can see active impingement of a tendon, an actively dislocating nerve or use stress imaging to demonstrate a ligament tear. It is also the best imaging study to find and localize a soft tissue foreign body.
Going beyond just a static image on typical imaging studies, MSK ultrasound uses sound waves to show blood flow, real-time pathology and movement – all without the use of radiation.
It is a safe and effective imaging modality for all ages.
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.
Dr. Jonathan Luchs
One of Dr. Luchs interests in the field of Musculoskeletal Radiology is Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. He trained as a fellow at the prestigious Hospital for Special Surgery in NY, NY. Whilst there his training included all modalities of musculoskeletal/orthopedic/spine images as well as Musculoskeletal Ultrasound. He brought his talent and knowledge of Musculoskeletal Imaging and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to the community and has helped to bring it to the national stage with his research and his teachings. He taught Musculoskeletal Ultrasound at a local ultrasound technologist school for several years and was an Instructor at the Society of Skeletal Radiology Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course for several years.
