Portable ultrasound is an ideal tool for orthopedists to examine the joints and surrounding soft tissues like tendons, ligaments and joint linings.
Portable Ultrasound may also be used for guided injection and in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is sensitive, radiation free, easily accessible, quick, and has high patient tolerability with relatively low cost.
Portable ultrasound provides real time images and dynamic assessment of the musculoskeletal system.In addition, joint aspiration and injection accuracy can be improved. A high frequency transducer is preferred and improves the image resolution to allow visualization of fine anatomic structures of the small parts.
