Musculoskeletal Ultrasound for Capturing Images In Real-Time
Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images for detection of musculoskeletal disorders. These sound waves get reflected back by the internal organs and are interpreted by special instruments to create images of the anatomic parts. No ionizing radiation is used in ultrasound imaging.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound technique is used to image soft tissues and bony structures in the body. This imaging technique captures images in real-time and shows the structure and movement of the body's internal organs. This property enables doctors to use this imaging technique for guiding real-time interventional procedures. This scanning procedure gives detailed images of the tendons, nerves, ligaments, joint capsules, muscles and other structures in the body.

Some of the Significant Advantages of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Are As Given Below:
However, ultrasound imaging technique has difficulty penetrating bone. For the internal structure of the bones, other imaging techniques such as MRI are used.
