Ultrasound — Musculoskeletal
Ultrasound imaging is a type of imaging that employs sound waves to create images of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and joints all over the body. It’s used to identify sprains, strains, rips, trapped nerves, arthritis, and other musculoskeletal problems. Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive procedure that does not involve the use of ionizing radiation. MSK sonographers assist in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal injuries. Ultrasound can also be used to monitor musculoskeletal injury interventions like physical therapy, occupational therapy, orthopedic surgery, and other minimally invasive procedures such as steroid injections or nerve blocks.
