Our physicians are trained in the use of diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound.
By using top-of-the-line, high-resolution ultrasound machines, the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints can be precisely identified and abnormal structures can be accurately diagnosed.
The test involves no exposure to harmful radiation, is completely comfortable and is relatively inexpensive as compared to MRI.
For some conditions, there are important limitations of ultrasound. In other conditions, it is superior to other imaging because it can assess structures in motion.
As our physicians are the technicians performing the procedure in our clinic, one gets the results of the study immediately. Oftentimes, same day recommendations are offered and treatments can be performed.
