Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a dynamic, non-invasive exam that allows high resolution, real-time evaluation of musculoskeletal disorders. It is a cost effective, reliable modality to assess and diagnose soft tissue conditions, strains, sprains, muscle tears and other disorders. Non-invasive and dynamic imaging is beneficial when range of motion is lost due to acute or chronic injury to major tendons, as well as in pain management and urgent care.
The UltraVision ultrasound scanner’s combination of excellent image quality, workflow and features makes the system the preferred choice for the musculoskeletal ultrasound application:
- Needle Visualization (NV)
An advanced algorithm that sends acoustic lines to intersect the needle and to uses elastography features to visualize tissue that is moved by the needle. This next-generation of needle visibility enables ultra fine needle placement with increased accuracy in guided injections procedures while maintaining an excellent overall image quality.
The UltraVision offers elastography as a non-invasive assessment of tissue stiffness in response to an applied pressure of the transducer on the tissue.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound is used in a variety of applications: Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Regenerative Medicine (via precision injection of Platelet Rich Plasma or Stem Cells), Podiatry, Physical Therapy, Anesthesiology, Pain Management and Sports Medicine.
