MSK Ultrasound System in Chiropractic Medicine

A Popular Choice

Chiropractic clinics across the country have been updating their office with a MSK ultrasound machine. Why?

Ultrasound technology is a popular choice among chiropractors since they don't use ionizing radiation like x-ray or CT scans, making them a safe choice for any patient. When superficial imaging is required, ultrasound can achieve extremely high resolution, quite comparable to that of MRI or CT scanning. 

Along with that, most convincingly is the new lower price point on high-resolution ultrasound machines for sale. These two factors make a MSK ultrasound system the right diagnostic tool for the chiropractic field of medicine. 

Common Applications

A musculoskeletal ultrasound can be used to diagnose a variety of MSK injuries and disorders. Primarily used to evaluate traumatic, inflammatory, and degenerative conditions of musculoskeletal structures. Providing dynamic information, the scans can be performed while moving the joint through a range of motion. A MSK ultrasound can also be used for needle guided injections for interventional procedures. It provides a higher level of accuracy, improved treatment success, and patient safety since the clinician can see exactly where the needle is being placed. MSK ultrasound imaging can help a chiropractor to identify:

  • Tendinosis
  • Tendon and ligament tears
  • Bursitis
  • Joint fluid
  • Peripheral nerve entrapment syndromes
  • Rheumatology conditions
  • Needle guided injections

Choosing the Right Ultrasound

There are a wide range of ultrasounds for sale on the market, but it doesn't have to be confusing. Here are some features to look for.

Portability: Provides excellent imaging quality, and can easily move from room to room.

High Frequency Linear Array Probe:  A higher frequency probe 12MHz or higher allows for better image resolution among superficial images.

Compound Imaging: Reduce artifacts in the image while better defining tissue by providing multiple lines of sight from the transducer at different angles.
Speckle Reduction Imaging: Reduces artifacts in darker areas of the image while also improving tissue definition.
Some other features you may see a need in your practice:
Color Doppler imaging: Ultrasound helps diagnose active inflammations by detecting elevated blood flow in the soft tissue.
Needle Guided Application: Used to direct needles during injections into joints and tissue, as well as aspirating fluids from specific target areas.

Having ultrasound imaging on site offers many real-time diagnostic benefits. If you're a chiropractor looking for the right MSK ultrasound system, KeeboMed can help you reach that goal.
