ULTRASOUND 

Take a look at what's going on inside your body in real time. Ultrasound has become an established imaging technique for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with rheumatic diseases.

 

Using Ultrasound for Diagnosis:
Ultrasound imaging is a safe and non-invasive way to look at superficial joint and tendon structures. In some cases it may allow for diagnosis without the need for x-ray or MRI imaging.

Ultrasound in Injections:
Arthritis is a very common cause of joint pain. People feel discomfort when the smooth cartilage of the joint wears thin. Through ultrasound guided injection, our doctors are able to target the precise site of your pain.
