Diagnostic Ultrasound

Updated: 2 days ago


Musculoskeletal Diagnostic Ultrasound has seen a considerable up tic in usage in recent years providing high-resolution scans of tendons, ligaments, nerves, joint capsules and muscles to confirm clinical diagnoses and initiate treatment. Musculoskeletal Diagnostic Ultrasound produces a dynamic or movement-related image done in real time and there are no contraindications.


Given adequate training of the examiner, it is very cost-effective, there is no ionizing radiation, the scanners are highly portable and it enables certain interventional procedures to be performed with great accuracy (therapeutic injections of local anesthetics and/or corticosteroids into areas of the anatomy) improving the effectiveness of the procedure.


MDU uses the same technology frequently used in obstetrics to assess babies, as well as abdominal and pelvic disorders. Sound waves produce pictures of nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body and to help diagnose and treat problems like arthritis and tendinosis, sprains, strains, tears, plantar fasciopathy and other soft tissue injuries. As opposed to other imaging techniques such as x-ray and standard MRI, diagnostic ultrasound allows structures to be visualized under active movement, and provides immediate onsite results.
