What is Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound Imaging?
Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive technique that allows us to diagnose problems in your muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, nerves, and bones. During the ultrasound, a transducer emits sound waves into your body. These waves bounce off the tissues and return to the transducer, creating detailed, real-time images that our specialists analyze. This advanced technology provides valuable insights into your symptoms, allowing for accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment planning.
What conditions can musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnose?
Our musculoskeletal imaging enable us to diagnose a wide range of conditions and injuries. These conditions include:
- tendon tears
- ligament tears
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- rotator cuff tears
- joint problems
- nerve entrapment
- bone fracture
What symptoms indicate I may need a MSK ultrasound exam?
If you’re experiencing symptoms such as the following, it may be time to consider a musculoskeletal radiology:
- limited movement
- inability to use an affected body part.
Entrapped nerves can cause additional symptoms like tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness, eventually restricting your movement. Don’t let these symptoms hold you back—our specialists are here to help.
What treatments use MSK ultrasound?
Musculoskeletal ultrasound’s real-time imaging capabilities make it an indispensable tool for targeted interventional procedures. Using ultrasound guidance, our providers ensure precise injections at the specific site of injured tissues. At The How Clinic, we offer ultrasound-guided joint injections of orthobiologics, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and placental tissue matrix (PTM), to promote optimal healing. Additionally, our practitioners utilize musculoskeletal ultrasound for nerve hydrodissection injections and trigger point injections, an effective treatment for pinched nerves.
How long does a musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound take?
Evaluations with one of our muskuloskeletal doctors can take up to one hour.
