Ultrasound of the joints, also known as sonography, is a form of imaging that uses sound waves to create images of specific areas of the body and organs.
Ultrasound of the joints is used to:
measure the amount of fluid in the joints;
assess the damage to soft tissues and muscles;
evaluate the tendon and joint inflammation;
study external formations from soft tissues (including benign and malignant tumors).
Our state-of-the-art ultrasound scanners provide high-quality images of the joints, which are able to identify even small details of both superficial and deep structures. Ultrasound examination of the joints is currently the leading tool for the diagnosis of joint diseases, providing invaluable assistance in their diagnosis.
Indications for ultrasound of the joints:
external changes in the form of swelling, redness or deformation of the joints;
pain or limited mobility in the joints;
diagnosing degenerative-dystrophic changes in the joints;
Advantages of ultrasound of the joints:

provides an opportunity to observe the joint in dynamics for accurate diagnosis and treatment;
