Ultrasound examination of the joint
An ultrasound examination of the joint allows for assessment of the structure of ligaments, tendons and muscles and to identify the accumulation of fluid in joint cavities.
During the ultrasound examination, the movement of the joint can be monitored in real time, which makes it possible to detect different functional disorders and improves the diagnostic accuracy of the examination.
Ultrasound examination is also often used during joint injection to deliver the medicine into the joint under ultrasound control.
The necessity of the examination is decided by the treating physician.
