Musculoskeletal Diagnosis

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Ultrasound First offers complete high level diagnostic ultrasound of the musculoskeletal system. When you get an exam your evaluation will include an evaluation of the ligaments, tendons, joints, muscle, blood vessels, nerves and other soft tissues based on the conditions your doctor wants to be evaluated.

There are many advantages to Diagnostic Ultrasound and can give you the answer you’re looking for, rule out conditions, or give additional information that your doctor needs to decide what the next step in treatment is.

Ultrasound has no radiation, is relatively faster than getting MRI, can evaluate motion or movement in real time, can see blood flow, and is relatively cheaper than MRI, CT and Xray.

Ultrasound can be of benefit especially in patients that have CT or MRI contrast dye allergies, are claustrophobic, too large to fit into equipment, or have a condition that ultrasound is the preferred method of diagnosis.
