Orthopedic Ultrasound, Inc. in Westlake Village, California, is a highly specialized musculoskeletal ultrasound practice. Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound provides the most accurate diagnostic information, but there’s a lack of health professionals able to use the technology with the necessary skill. Orthopedic Ultrasound, Inc. is a pioneer of musculoskeletal ultrasound technology in the United States and is one of only a few such imaging centers across the country.
MSK ultrasound is the only form of technology available that gives medical professionals real-time, dynamic visualization of the patient’s joints and soft tissues. As well as being a superior approach to diagnostic imaging for many musculoskeletal disorders, such as arthritis and elbow pain, ultrasound is also safe, fast, and patient-friendly. It doesn’t use any radiation, and no adverse effects have been reported after an MSK ultrasound.
One of the most significant advantages of MSK ultrasound is the ability of the technology to show the tissues as they move. Very often, the true extent of an injury isn’t apparent unless other tissues stretch to expose hidden areas of damage. With MSK ultrasound, these hidden injuries are visible, ensuring the most accurate diagnosis.
Another major advantage of MSK ultrasound is that it’s possible to perform the exam in the clinic or even at the patient’s bedside, and quickly compare the painful area to the opposite, healthy tissue. MSK ultrasound is also essential in the accurate delivery of injectable treatments like steroids and regenerative medicine. It has designed special techniques referred to as the “Jablon protocol” for examining joints such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, foot, and ankle.
For all its benefits, MSK ultrasound isn’t expensive compared with other imaging technologies and actually costs considerably less than most.
