To aid in diagnosing medical conditions of the musculoskeletal system, OrthoSC provides ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography. This nonoperative procedure involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in X-rays). Ultrasound imaging is typically used to diagnose:

  • Abnormalities of the muscles
  • Bleeding or other fluid collections within the muscles, bursae, and joints
  • Early changes of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Small benign and malignant soft tissue tumors
  • Tendon tears

OrthoSC provides ultrasound-guided injections at all of our office locations. For more information regarding ultrasound imaging, please call OrthoSC at (843) 353-3460.
