Musculoskeletal Ultrasound at Drexel Sports Medicine
Musculoskeletal ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of painful or injured soft tissues in the extremities. These images give Drexel Sports Medicine physicians an accurate guide for treatment and rehabilitation.
The benefits of musculoskeletal ultrasound include the ability to perform a thorough exam for a specific problem without the use of potentially harmful radiation. Drexel Sports Medicine physicians use musculoskeletal ultrasound to investigate injuries to the shoulder, elbow, hand/wrist, hip/knee, ankle/foot, and nerves. It can also be used to perform ultrasound-guided injections, aspirations, and percutaneous tenotomy procedures.
