Musculoskeletal ultrasounds are used to examine muscles, tendons, and ligaments throughout the body.

Your health professional may request musculoskeletal ultrasound if you have experienced an injury following trauma or investigate causes of chronic musculoskeletal pain.

During the musculoskeletal ultrasound, warm gel is applied to the joint before the imaging technician places the probe on the skin surface and applies gentle pressure to obtain accurate and clear images.
