MSK Ultrasound

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK or MSK US) is a safe scanning technology that uses sound waves to create an image of tendons, ligaments, joints, and muscles throughout the body. It is used to diagnose ligament sprains & tears, tendon tears, tendinitis of the rotator cuff, Achilles tendon, inflammation of fluid within the bursae or joints, ganglion cysts, benign or malignant soft tissue conditions or tumors, hernias, early changes in rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and foreign bodies (ex. splinters or glass).

MSK Ultrasound is safe & comfortable

  • No radiation exposure.
  • Useful for patients unable to have an MRI.
  • Safe for children.
  • Pacemaker- and defibrillator safe.
  • Avoids claustrophobia issues associated with some MRI machines.

How MSK Ultrasound works

MSK US is used to diagnose many types of muscle problems & injuries, and is therefore useful in sports medicine. It can record “dynamic imaging” where a patient performs the maneuvers that cause pain, enabling RMI’s radiologists to spot exactly where it hurts. The imaging is very useful for athletes and workers who perform repetitive motions. Your doctor can then determine the best treatment for your injury. Examples of problem areas that can be examined included:

For infants and children, MSK US is used to help diagnose fluid in a painful hip joint, neck muscle abnormalities in infants with torticollis (neck twisting), soft tissue masses (lumps & bumps), hip dislocations in infants.

MSK Ultrasound cost savings

RMI’s cash pricing (self-pay pricing) can save you 50% or more compared to other providers. This is ideal for those without insurance or who have high deductibles. Learn more about our cash pricing.

For those paying via insurance, MSK Ultrasound exams do not require prior authorization, unlike CT and MRI studies.

Preparing for an MSK Ultrasound procedure

You should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for your ultrasound exam.
