Musculoskeletal ultrasound

    The latest innovations on musculoskeletal assessment

    Why ultrasound for MSK? It provides real-time imaging, making it an ideal tool to guide minimally invasive procedures such as needle biopsies and fluid aspiration. It allows for a dynamic examination that can show the movement of soft tissue structures. Ultrasound offers an excellent companion to MRI by providing a cost-effective first look, and it supports a wide range of MSK anatomies thanks to specially designed transducers.
