My recent attendance at the July 2014 Musculoskeletal Ultrasound meeting allows me to evaluate muscle, tendon or ligament injuries to the extremities. If indicated at a patient's initial visit, our office can complete an ultrasound evaluation of the soft tissues of the extremity to make accurate diagnoses of the severity of injury to these tissues. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a noninvasive procedure without exposing the patients to radiation and is less expensive than an MRI. This relatively new technique to assist a physician's diagnostic accuracy improves care by directing the physician to provide specific treatments sooner and afford the patient the opportunity for a quicker recovery.
