Summit Orthopedic Specialists offers diagnostic ultrasound to examine the musculoskeletal system of the body to detect problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue. Ultrasound provides real-time, noninvasive rapid examination and has become an integral tool of diagnosis.
We also utilizes ultrasound to guide therapeutic injections, such as platelet rich plasma therapy and cortisone injections. Using real-time, high resolution images, we are able to precisely target the injection to the injured area. Musculoskeletal ultrasound has many advantages including live action imaging which shows movement, function and anatomy and enables us to pinpoint the source of pain and treat it effectively without any radiation.
