Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasonography uses ultrasound technology to diagnose muscle, tendon, and ligament pain. Effective, affordable, safe, and painless, it has become a popular choice for both physicians and patients in recent years.
Ultrasonography involves using a microphone-like device called a transducer to send sound waves through the body. These waves are then reflected back, interpreted, and displayed on a monitor to give a detailed picture of the body’s internal anatomy. In the treatment of musculoskeletal pain, this technology is invaluable as a diagnostic tool. What’s more, MSK Ultrasound can be used for guidance to help doctors to perform treatment procedures that can take care of the conditions found.
