Unlocking Precision With Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
$149.99 Only $89.99

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSKUS) is a safe and painless imaging technique that utilizes sound waves to produce high-resolution images of the musculoskeletal system. Unlike traditional imaging methods like X-rays or MRI, MSK US provides dynamic, real-time visualization of structures in motion, allowing for a comprehensive assessment of function and pathology. Furthermore, there is no radiation with MSK US as opposed to MRI or X-rays.

Advantages of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

  1. Precision Diagnosis: MSK US offers unparalleled detail, allowing for precise localization and characterization of musculoskeletal abnormalities such as tears, inflammation, cysts, and fluid collections.
  2. Dynamic Assessment: Unlike static imaging techniques, MSKUS captures real-time movement, enabling dynamic evaluation of joint mechanics, muscle function, and tendon gliding.
  3. Non-Invasive: MSK US is non-invasive, eliminating the need for radiation exposure or contrast agents.
  4. Cost-Effective: With its efficiency and accuracy, MSK US can streamline the diagnostic process, potentially reducing the need for additional tests and procedures.
  5. Guided Interventions: MSK US serves not only as a diagnostic tool but also as a guidance system for minimally invasive procedures such as injections, aspirations, and biopsies, improving accuracy and patient outcomes.

Conditions We Evaluate

  • Tendon Pathologies: Achilles tendinitis, rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, patellar tendinitis and more.
  • Joint Disorders: Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Synovitis, meniscus tears, labral tears, and effusions.
  • Muscle Injuries: Sprains, tears, contusions, and muscle atrophy.
    Soft Tissue Lesions: Ganglion cysts, lipomas, hematomas, and nerve entrapment syndromes.
  • Sports Injuries: Stress fractures, ligament sprains, and overuse syndromes.
