Musculoskeletal

Here at Medpoint Radiology, we understand the importance of efficient and accurate diagnosis for your musculoskeletal concerns. That's why we offer comprehensive musculoskeletal ultrasound services, providing a safe, painless, and radiation-free way to examine your muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and surrounding soft tissues.

What is Musculoskeletal Ultrasound?


A musculoskeletal ultrasound utilizes high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of your musculoskeletal system. Unlike X-rays, which primarily image bones, ultrasound excels at visualizing soft tissues, making it ideal for:

• Identifying tears, strains, and sprains in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
• Diagnosing tendonitis, bursitis, and other inflammatory conditions.
• Evaluating joint problems like arthritis and fluid collections.
• Guiding injections for pain management and treatment.
• Examining soft tissue masses and cysts.

Who can benefit from Musculoskeletal Ultrasound?


If you're experiencing pain, stiffness, swelling, or limited mobility in your muscles, joints, or tendons, a musculoskeletal ultrasound could be a valuable tool for your doctor. Common conditions diagnosed with ultrasound include:
• Rotator cuff tears
• Tennis elbow
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Bursitis
• Tendinitis
• Arthritis
• Soft tissue masses

Small Parts

 
At Medpoint Radiology, we also understand the importance of having a clear picture of your health. That's why we offer small parts ultrasound, a non-invasive imaging technique ideal for examining various superficial organs and structures.

What is Small Parts Ultrasound?


Small parts ultrasound utilizes high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of structures close to the body's surface. This painless procedure allows our team to assess a range of "small parts," including:

• Thyroid gland: Used to identify nodules, cysts, or other abnormalities that may affect thyroid function.
• Breasts: Helpful in evaluating lumps, masses, or changes in breast tissue.
• Lymph nodes: Can detect swelling or enlargement that may indicate infection or other conditions.
• Scrotum (testes): Used to examine for testicular pain, swelling, or masses.
• Eyes (in some cases): May be used to assess certain eye conditions.

Benefits of Small Parts Ultrasound at Medpoint Radiology:
• Painless and non-invasive procedure
• Fast and efficient, often completed in 15-30 minutes
• Provides real-time images for immediate evaluation
• Safe for all ages, including pregnant women (excluding obstetric ultrasound)
• No radiation exposure

When to Consider Small Parts Ultrasound


If you're experiencing any of the following concerns, a small parts ultrasound may be recommended by your doctor:
• Lumps or bumps in the neck, breast, or scrotum
• Unexplained pain or swelling
• Changes in size or texture of a small part
• Follow-up examination after a previous abnormality
