Ultrasound: Detailed Examination with Soft Tissue Ultrasound
Soft tissue ultrasound is a valuable tool that allows doctors to visualize structures inside the body, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other non-bony tissues. Unlike other imaging modalities, soft tissue ultrasound offers a dynamic, real-time view of these structures, facilitating accurate diagnoses and guidance in interventional procedures.
The Power of Soft Tissue Ultrasound
This type of ultrasound is especially valuable in the evaluation of sports injuries, inflammations, tumors, hernias, and other conditions that affect the body's soft tissues. It can also help guide procedures such as biopsies or injections, giving doctors a clear view of where they should place their instruments.
Advantages over Other Imaging Modalities
One of the main advantages of soft tissue ultrasound is its ability to provide real-time images. This makes it ideal for evaluating the movement and function of specific structures, such as a tendon in action or blood flow in a specific area.
Common use: Ganglia, Abscesses (Balls in the body) and hernias.
Requirements: By appointment
