Diagnostic Ultrasound

Diagnostic ultrasound imaging in sports medicine has proven to be a reliable imaging modality in a variety of c0nditions that are often difficult to evaluate using x-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans or magnetic resonance imaging.

Ultrasound imaging in sports medicine relies on high frequency sound waves that are transmitted to the skin overlying the area of interest such as the wrist, shoulder, or knee. As these waves encounter different tissues, some waves are reflected back to their source while others continue on until they too are reflected. At the source, which a device known as a transducer, the returning sound waves are converted to electrical impulses that are sent to a computer which uses these impulses to construct an image of the area being evaluated.
