Our clinic on the A217 has installed the latest Mindray DP-50 diagnostic ultrasound scanner to enhance our osteopaths and physios examination and diagnosis of soft tissue injuries.
Diagnostic ultrasound scanning is used to create effective imaging of the musculoskeletal system inside the body. Ultrasound scanning involves the use of a transducer and ultrasound gel that is placed directly onto the skin. High frequency sound waves are transmitted from the transducer, through the gel and into the body. The transducer collects the sounds waves that bounce back and allow images to be created onto a computer screen. Ultrasound images produce clear images of the musculoskeletal structures of joints as well as the movements in the body's internal organs and blood flow through the blood vessels.
Unlike X-ray imaging, ultrasound scanning has no radiation exposure and is a non-invasive medical test. Ultrasound examinations are painless and easily tolerated by patients. All scanning procedures are usually completed within your osteopathy or physiotherapy session, but may occasionally take longer.
Ultrasound images are commonly used to help diagnose many common muscular injuries including tendon tears, tendonitis, muscle and ligament injuries, inflammation, ganglion cysts and hernias. Our specifically trained therapists at Parkview are able to interpret radiology imagery and analyse the results so that a diagnosis and conclusion can be made from the examination. Having access to this modality allows out patients treatment and rehabilitation to get on the right track as fast as possible.
