Part 1: Facts About Ultrasound you may not know

With regards to Ultrasound use in the doctors office, Dr. Madden gave a lecture about incorporating ultrasound technology into patient care. Many doctors use ultrasound to guide their injections- making them more accurate and effective– but there’s more to it than that! It can also be used to examine injuries to tendons and ligaments, to discover small fractures, and to better locate and measure soft tissue lesions. Your doctor may use ultrasound to diagnose or evaluate conditions such as neuromas, tumors, ganglions, tendonitis, or plantar fasciitis. Ultrasound does not use radiation, and is therefore very safe.
