Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive diagnostic tool that allows the provider to see “under the skin” in real-time to help diagnose and treat issues with muscles, nerves, ligaments, and joints. It is also a great tool to ensure accuracy when performing injections into joints such as the knee, shoulder, or elbow. The following is a sample video clip of an ultrasound exam for educational purposes only.
Ultrasound Imaging and Patient Education
3D “Peel Away” Anatomy for Enhanced Patient Education
We emphasize patient education to help the patient understand why they are feeling discomfort and to further discuss treatment options. Side-by-side with ultrasound, 3D “peel away” anatomy images will give the patient more information as to why they may be feeling discomfort and to better understand their diagnosis.
