MSK Scanning

About Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints of the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears and other soft tissue conditions. 


Ultrasound imaging is cost effective and has the advantage of displaying tendon tears and otherpatholgies in real time. The accuracy of MSK ultrasound is very operator dependant and should be performed only by the hands of an experienced MSK sonographer.
