Our dream is for the entire public to have access to an MSK Ultrasound.
MSK ULTRASOUND IS THE MOST POWERFUL DIAGNOSTIC TEST FOR PAIN IN THE SHOULDER, ELBOW, WRIST, HAND, HIP, KNEE, ANKLE AND FOOT. MSK Ultrasound is FAST, ACCURATE and FRACTION THE COST of other diagnostic tests. Patients love MSK Ultrasound and there are NO CONTRAINDICATIONS and NO RADIATION.
MRI has been the 'go to' test for joint imaging for many years. MSK Ultrasound is the new Gold standard. The uniqueness of MSK Ultrasound is the DYNAMIC capability. Ultrasound shows joints and soft tissue IN MOTION. Tendons and ligaments are elastic, dynamic structures. Often times, while lying completely still in an MRI scanner, small tears can be hidden, not visualized, completely missing the diagnosis, steering the patient in the wrong direction. MSK Ultrasound enables the doctor to see the full dynamic range of tendons and ligaments, exposing the tiniest tears and defects. Another amazing advantage of MSK Ultrasound is the COMFORT and EASE of the exam. By comparison, MRI requires the patient to be confined inside a large tube enduring loud banging sounds, unable to move, even a slight hickup or scratching and itch could obscure the test. Many patients need to be sedated prior to the MRI. MSK Ultrasound is the complete opposite. The patient is examined comfortably in the office without anxiety or restrictions...movement is encouraged and improves the image! Orthopedic Ultrasound, Inc. is very excited to make this powerful technology (MSK Ultrasound) available to everyone. It is our #1 priorty to provide you the greatest experience during the diagnostic test and pinpoint your diagnosis "spot on" so that you can RECOVER FAST and live PAIN FREE.
