Diagnostic Ultrasound

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Musculoskeletal ultrasound is the use of high frequency sound waves to visualize anatomic structures. Ultrasound is evolving as a diagnostic tool in assessing joint and soft tissue pathology. The exam is painless and allows the patient to see in real time their pathology. The procedure is done in the physician’s office and usually takes a few minutes. Shoulders, knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists, and muscles and soft tissues may be examined. Diagnostic ultrasound is commonly used in the NFL and the Olympics. New and exciting treatment modalities using ultrasound are being investigated for plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and Achilles Tendonitis to name a few. Many times a diagnostic ultrasound may be used in place of an MRI. Diagnostic ultrasound is a developing technology that aids the physician in his decision to best treat the patient.
