Orthopaedic Ultrasound

Orthopaedic ultrasound is highly beneficial for diagnostic and interventional purposes. Our technicians use ultrasound to evaluate soft tissue structures such as muscles, tendons, and vascular structures within the shoulder, elbow, hip, hand, and wrist. If you have claustrophobia, or cannot undergo an MRI, ultrasound allows us to examine you quickly and immediately.

We also use ultrasound for procedure guidance during shoulder, knee and hip injections. Orthopaedic ultrasound is just one example of how we’re constantly innovating to provide you with the best possible care.

In-office Radiology

For rapid diagnosis, our in-office testing includes digital X-rays; Electromyography (EMG) to measure and record activity in your muscles; Nerve Conduction Studies (NCV) to assess nerve damage and diagnose disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome; and Dexa Scans to measure bone density to diagnose osteoporosis.

By keeping testing on-site, you won’t have to leave the building to get an X-ray. Plus, our physicians can get a more accurate and effective interpretation for your diagnosis and treatment.
