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.
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:
- Tendon and ligament tears
- Joint fluid
- Peripheral nerve entrapment syndromes
- Rheumatology conditions
- Needle guided injections
