Diagnostic Ultrasound by Somerset Health Practice
Ultrasound is the most rapidly developing technique in musculoskeletal imaging. Continuing advances in technology have broadened its application, such that it now replaces MRI in many specific clinical settings.
Diagnostic ultrasound technology is advancing so quickly; it is often the first means of investigation because it is safer as there is no radiation.
Within orthopaedics it is used to visualise shoulders, elbows and hands, hips, knees and feet and for increasing accuracy of guiding medical procedures such as injections or draining fluids from the body.
It is also used for determining if superficial body lumps are harmless or if they require further investigation.
