Point of Care Ultrasound

Point of Care Ultrasound

Our Physicians use point-of-care (clinical) ultrasound to help identify pain producing structures / problems and direct diagnostic and therapeutic injections. An ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure performed in the office that uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of the targeted area. Images of the internal soft tissues appear on a computer monitor that the physician can view in real time with the patient. These images will identify any clear causes of pain that cannot be detected during a physical examination.





The image on the left shows an acute bursitis compared to the normal image on the right. After an ultrasound guided injection, this problem resolved.
