We have a team of specialist trained sonographers who carry out all MSK scans. Our MSK team of sonographers work in large teaching London Hospitals and are in -charge of training programmes for the MSK within their individual hospitals.

Ultrasound can assess the joints for common problems such as arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, fluid in the joints, carpal tunnel syndrome etc. Ultrasound is used as a modality of choice as the sonographer can dynamically assess the joint whilst performing the scan.

The following list comprises of the most common musculoskeletal conditions and areas of the body where ultrasound is most useful.

Ultrasound assessment for  rotator cuff problems such as bursitis, tendinosis or tendon tears. Symptoms would include shoulder pain and reduced mobility.

Ultrasound assessment for Tennis or Golfer’s elbow from repetitive strain movements.
