Why We Use Diagnostic Ultrasound for Injuries
Ultrasound technology allows us to diagnose injuries quickly. The evaluation takes place right in the office. During the visit, Dr. Abrahamson can see and evaluate most muscle, tendon and soft tissue injuries/concerns.
Diagnostic ultrasound costs much less than an MRI and even provides more detail for certain injuries than a traditional MRI. Dr. Abrahamson, one of the few physicians to dedicate himself to learning diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound, can see injuries more dynamically during the exam. Where other imaging options require a patient to be still, Dr. Abrahamson can have the patient move the joint during the ultrasound. Being able to see the injury in motion allows for a better understanding of the injury.
