Soft Tissue Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Muskuloskeletal Ultrasound is safe and painless, and produces pictures of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves the use of a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel placed directly on the skin. High-frequency sound waves are transmitted from the probe through the gel into the body. The transducer collects the sounds that bounce back and a computer then uses those sound waves to create an image. Ultrasound examinations do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays), thus there is no radiation exposure to the patient. Ultrasound images of the musculoskeletal system provide pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and soft tissues throughout the body. Ultrasound images of the foot and ankle can be used to help with diagnosis of plantar fasciitis (heel pain), Achilles tendonitis, muscle tears, soft tissues cysts and masses, neuromas , foreign bodies and other soft tissue pathologies.
