Musculoskeletal ultrasound
Ultrasound is a reliable diagnostic method for diseases of the musculoskeletal system. It enables the orthopedic doctor to image the soft tissues and the joints without burdening the patient with radiation. It is a fast, painless imaging method, which can be repeated without any restrictions for the body. In many cases of soft tissue injuries, it is possible for the ultrasound to replace the MRI scan, thus saving the patient time and money. In cases where the patient is not allowed to do an MRI, eg due to the presence of a pacemaker or metal implants in the body, the ultrasound can provide the solution and help in the diagnosis.
