Ultrasound (US) or sonography involves the sending of sound waves through the body. Those sound waves are reflected off the internal organs. The reflections are then interpreted by special instruments that subsequently create an image of anatomic parts. No radiation is involved in ultrasound imaging.
The image is a useful way of examining the musculoskeletal system of the body to detect problems with muscles, tendons, joints and soft tissue. Ultrasound images are captured in real time, so they can often show movement, function, and anatomy, as well as enable radiologists to diagnose a variety of conditions and assess damage after an injury or illness.
Used in Europe and Asia extensively for the last 25 years, Advanced Ultrasound Imaging has brought this cost effective and diagnostically relevant technology to the United States and is the first commercial company to specialize in bringing this test to the patient. We have developed a series of special procedures to ensure continuity and quality of testing The test is referred to as the UltraScan™.
