What is Diagnostic Ultrasound?

Diagnostic ultrasound is an imaging tool that’s been used since the 1950s but has just started to become popular in the sports medicine and orthopedic fields. Ultrasounds produce an image of your internal anatomy using sound waves.

Traditionally, MRIs, CT scans, and X-rays were used to provide musculoskeletal images, but these only give static pictures. With ultrasound technology, Dr. Vogt and Dr. Hunnius can see how your systems function not just when you’re still, but also when you’re moving. Seeing your body in motion allows the doctors to thoroughly examine your issue, find what’s causing your pain or malfunction, and determine the best course of action for treatment. Without this type of technology, exploratory surgery is the only other option that can provide doctors a similar experience.

Diagnostic Ultrasound Treatment Goals

An ultrasound uses sound waves to create an image. It first emits high-frequency sounds, then records the sound waves that bounce back, echoing off your bones, organs, and other soft tissues. It uses this information to create an image on a computer screen of what’s going on inside your body.

These procedures can be used to help you heal from sports injuries or post-surgery rehabilitation. Diagnostic Ultrasound can also help aid in restoring joint function in those with arthritis and other chronic conditions.

When you want pain relief and recovery from an injury without surgery, request an appointment with the physicians at the SMaRT Institute. If you think the SMaRT Institute can help you, call the office or book your appointment online today.

Ultrasound Usage

Dr. Vogt and Dr. Hunnius recommend ultrasounds when they’re diagnosing or treating specific sports injuries or orthopedic conditions. These ultrasounds allow them to see inside the body to determine the issue.

Beyond diagnostic purposes, the doctors may use ultrasound to help with specific procedures, including ultrasound-guided injections.

How Long Does a Diagnostic Ultrasound Take?

At the SMaRT Institute, your ultrasound evaluation typically takes 30-60 minutes.

There is no preparation required. There are no contraindications to an ultrasound evaluation and no limitations following the visit.
