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.
