What are the benefits of musculoskeletal ultrasound for patients?

There are a variety of benefits to patients using a musculoskeletal ultrasound, according to the Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians.

For sports medicine needs, the real-time imaging is helpful because patients can have the imaging bedside instead of having to have a separate outpatient appointment, according to PPN physicians.  

Patients can talk to their doctor during this imaging so they doctor can have a much better understanding of exactly where the pain is coming from, according to PPN physicians.

Also with a musculoskeletal ultrasound, there’s no radiation exposure like with X-rays and MRIs, according to PPN physicians. 

It’s also cost-effective, according to PPN physicians. It’s less expensive that a lot of other advanced imaging techniques.
