Ultrasound examinations of the musculoskeletal system

Ultrasound examinations of the musculoskeletal system

Ultrasound (US) is normal sound waves at frequencies above 20,000 Hz that the human ear cannot detect. The application of ultrasound has completely revolutionized medicine. Complete innocence of ultrasound waves, modern devices with excellent resolution, the possibility of real-time inspection and the possibility of intervention (injections, blockages, aspirations) are just some of the advantages of this great method. Ultrasound examinations of the musculoskeletal system are one of the most important applications of this technology, and for some areas (shoulder joint, ankle, tendons, etc.) it is the method of choice in the initial diagnosis.
