Ultrasound is an imaging technique that complements clinical diagnosis and improves therapeutic options.
We can identify and study a large number of tissues among which are: joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves, skin, etc.
The advantages of ultrasound are many, among which stand out:
- Portability and speed, being able to be performed in consultation without the need to wait for other longer tests.
- Obtaining images in "real time" knowing exactly how the patient is at the time of the consultation.
- Possibility of performing a dynamic exploration, since pain often appears with joint mobility and it is not possible to detect them with other static
diagnostic tests such as CT or MRI.
- Patient comfort, avoiding claustrophobia, long examination times or unpleasant noises.
- Useful in surgery, minimizing tissue damage and improving postoperative recovery.
