Diagnostic Ultrasound

What is Diagnostic Ultrasound?

Diagnostic ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.

Ultrasound examinations do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Ultrasound images are captured in real-time and can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.

This imaging technique is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

Ultrasound images of the musculoskeletal system provide pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue throughout the body.

Geoff Twinning and Jane Breen-Turner have developed their skills in the area of sonography to help assist with the diagnosis of soft tissue injuries.
