  • Musculoskeletal Ultrasound explained

    The musculoskeletal system includes muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments and soft tissues. Ultrasound uses reflected high frequency sound waves to image these structures and to assess blood flow within them. Ultrasound is useful in many conditions. Common examples include;

    • Shoulder (rotator cuff tears, tendonitis, bursitis, impingement syndrome)
    • Elbow (collateral ligament evaluation, triceps/biceps tendons)
    • Hand/wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome, tendon tears)
    • Hip/knee (quadriceps/patellar tendon injuries, Baker's cyst, bursitis)
    • Ankle/foot (achilles tendon, plantar fasciitis, Morton's neuroma, joint problems, tendon/ligament)
    • Nerves and masses (tumors, cysts, etc.)
    • Guided injections
  • Preparation

    Please bring your referral, Medicare and Pension Health Care Cards with any previous imaging relating to the region being scanned.

    No preparation is required.

  • What happens during the procedure

    You may be asked to put on a gown. Gel is applied to the skin to improve contact between the skin and transducer (a handheld plastic probe which sends and receives the reflected sound waves that forms the image).  The transducer is moved slowly over the area of interest to acquire images in different planes. The images are displayed on a computer monitor for interpretation. Ultrasound is generally painless but discomfort from transducer pressure may be experienced if the region examined is tender.

  • How long does it take

    An ultrasound takes approx 15-30 minutes depending on the complexity.

  • After Your Examination

    There are no restrictions after having an ultrasound.

  • Your images and report

    After your examination, you will be given a copy of the most pertinent images from your study. A report will be given to you with the images, or sent directly back to your referring doctor by fax or email. PRP will store digital copies of all studies on our secure database for comparison with any future examinations.

    Please bring any previous images with you for comparison.

    It is important that you return to your doctor with your examination results. Whether they are normal or abnormal, your doctor needs to know promptly so that a management plan can be formulated.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive examination that uses very high frequency sound waves to produce high resolution images on almost all body parts.
