The real time capability of Ultrasound allows for the assessment of joint and tendon movements and stability.
In addition, this modality allows for the detection of fracture union and reunion, structural abnormalities, infections, ligament injury, nerve compression and mechanical impingement between orthopedic hardware and soft tissue structures.
Beyond diagnostics, the real time use and capability of Ultrasound is useful for guiding therapeutic interventions, such as Synvisc One injections and Corticosteroid injections.
