Welcome to Inner-Vision Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Scans

​​

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is a rapidly emerging scanning technique for assessing complaints of the joints and soft tissues of the body.

Here at Inner-Vision we have the rare expertise to fully utilise this technique. 

 

Armed with the knowledge and skills coupled with years of medical imaging experience, Inner-vision have developed a unique scan and report package to help you to a timely diagnosis with all the information your clinician could need.

The Inner-Vision Difference includes:

- An extended scan time: We offer the unique opportunity of a long scanning slot, which provides us with the time to explore your complaints in greater depth and gives you a platform to provide us with real time feedback such as areas of maximum tenderness when being scanned.

- The Unique Inner-Vision scan report: The depth and breadth of the Inner-vision report is a clinicians dream. Each report encompasses a combination of descriptive, image and diagrammatic data, literally an 'X marks the spot'  approach (See sample report on the left)

- The opportunity to avoid waiting times: We can typically accommodate you for an appointment quickly, avoiding the extended waiting times in the NHS

What can we scan?

Musculoskeletal ultrasound in the right hands can detect a plethora of conditions and help build a picture of the health of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.

Common indications include:

  • Suspicion of tendon/ligament injury or tear

  • Assessment of swellings (? fluid, ?soft tissue lesions) 

  • Restricted movement 

  • Joint instability

  • Repetitive strain

  • Slow recovery following injury

The vast number of conditions and ailments that ultrasound can expose, coupled with its relative safety, patient comfort and low cost compared with other modalities make ultrasound the first line of diagnosis for many clinicians investigating musculoskeletal complaints.

Common musculoskeletal problems ultrasound can detect include:

  • Muscle, tendon, ligament strains/tears

  • Tendinopathies (Previously termed tendonitis) such as "tennis or golfers" elbow, "Jumpers knee"

  • Bursitis (such as "Housemaids knee", "bakers cysts")

  • Plantar fasciitis AKA "policemans heel"

A more expansive list of musculoskeletal complaints can be found here, with guidance on whether ultrasound is a suitable approach for diagnosis. Please contact us with any questions or for further clarification
