Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging Near You
Skip the initial Dr. visit and get a diagnostic first. Then go exactly where you need to go for care. No Referral Needed! Use your FSA or HSA
Musculoskeletal shoulder issues are quite common. By the age of 70, 50% of individuals have a partial or full rotator cuff tear. Common pathologies that can be diagnosed with ultrasound include but are not limited to rotator cuff tear, tendinosis, postoperative shoulder, bursitis, frozen shoulder, arthritis, and fractures
Up to 10% of all sports injuries involve the elbow. Additionally, 15% of adults over the age of 50 experience elbow pain. Injuries diagnosed by ultrasound can range from tennis and golfer’s elbow, tendon and ligament ruptures, sprains, arthritis, bursitis, and fractures.
Over 25% of adults over the age of 65 have hip pain. Hip pain can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life, limiting mobility and independence. Common hip pathologies diagnosed with ultrasound include but are not limited to bursitis, tendinosis, muscle tears/sprains, arthritis, and fractures.
Hand and Wrist
Up to 30% of sports injuries involve the hand or wrist. Common pathologies diagnosed by ultrasound for the hands and wrists include ganglion cysts, trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, A1 pulley tears, and fractures.
Foot and Ankle
Up to 25% sports injuries involve the foot and ankle. 4%-7% of the population experience plantar fasciitis. Additionally, half of individuals over the age of 65 develop osteoarthritis. Common foot and ankle pathologies diagnosed with ultrasound include but are not limited to Achilles tendinitis tendinosis, ankle sprains, ligament tears, fractures, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, arthritis, and Morton’s neuromas/fibromas.
Upwards of 25% of sports injuries involve the knee. Additionally, knee pain affects 50% of adults over the age of 65. Common knee pathologies diagnosed with ultrasound include but are not limited to swelling, bursitis, MCL-LCL sprain/tears, patellar and quad tendinosis, IT Band syndrome, muscle tears/sprain, Baker’s cyst, and arthritis.
As Effective as MRI
Ultrasound has been around for a very long time. Ultrasound has been the subject of thousands of research papers and has been found to be as effective as MRI in most musculoskeletal structures. It is also safer than MRI, which uses magnets, or a CT Scan, which uses radiation.
If you belong to half the U.S. population, you are currently experiencing some type of muscle-related injury (musculoskeletal or MSK). Unfortunately, most musculoskeletal injuries go undiagnosed, leaving MSK injuries or conditions untreated, which can lead to debilitating and irreversible pain later in life. The first application of musculoskeletal ultrasound was a Baker’s cyst in 1972. MSK Ultrasound has been the subject of thousands of research papers for sports and recreational related injuries and has been found to be just as effective and reliable as MRI in most musculoskeletal injuries. MRI is a costly and time consuming exam and oftentimes can’t be used because of internal hardware, such as a pacemaker or joint replacement. Unlike MRI, dynamic testing can also be performed using Ultrasound. This allows for identifying the integrity of soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments under load. Ultrasound is safer than a CT Scan and X-ray, which uses high doses of radiation. We offer an inexpensive, effective, fast, and accessible way to see under the skin so you and your doctor can talk about the most targeted and effective treatment options. This will help you get straight to the root of the problem. Echo Mind Ai has developed technology that empowers our MSK Ultrasound diagnostics to be very fast (usually 15-20 minutes; same day at the latest), and on average 1/4 the out-of-pocket cost of an MRI. Diagnostic imaging is also a qualified expense for FSA and HSA reimbursement.
Echo Mind Ai has opened its first retail location, serving practitioners in the area and their patients. Walk-ins and appointments without a referral are also welcome. Our services include a very quick 5-10 minute ultrasound scan, and a detailed diagnostic PDF report. Each PDF report consists of two different perspectives of 2-3 anatomical structures respectively. You can take your diagnostic report to your physician, physical therapist, or orthopedic for targeted treatment recommendations.
NOTE: Echo Mind Ai does not currently diagnose spinal conditions using Ultrasound
