MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND (MSK)

Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound is a specialized exam that uses ultrasound to specifically look at your muscular skeletal system. 


MSK ultrasound technologists have special training in looking at and documenting muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and nerves with ultrasound.  A Radiologist will interpret these images to determine if they are normal or abnormal. This can also allow for a MSK injection, where under Ultrasound guidance the radiologist is able to directly inject joints, tendon sheaths as well as nerve releases in order to reduce inflammation or provide other therapeutic means.
