Diagnostic Ultrasounds

Ultrasound is a contemporary imaging method , which in recent years has been increasingly used in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

The ultrasounds depict the imaging of the soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and the joints of the limbs. Tendonitis, ruptures of tendons or ligaments, muscle fractures, intra-articular fluid, bone erosions, inflammation of bursas, but also ganglia, lipomas, cysts, hematomas and calcifications are also depicted.

In addition to their use in diagnosis, the ultrasounds are a very useful tool in monitoring the progression and treatment of any condition.

Ultrasounds are safe, painless and do not involve the use of radiation or a magnetic field. Their most significant advantage is that it is a test that allows the imaging of the affected area in real time and in this way diseases are detected that cannot be diagnosed in a dormant phase.

Furthermore, therapeutic injections of medication and substances can be performed with ultrasounds guidance, which enhance the correct and accurate placement of the needle in the affected area, with much better results.
