Yes, you heard that right! At Sports Medicine South, Dr Gary Levengood and his staff are using ultrasound to assist in making the most accurate diagnoses possible. In the office, ultrasound is utilized in diagnostic imaging of musculoskeletal injuries including joint effusion, tendonitis, ligamentous tears, soft tissue injuries and bony structure defects. Ultrasound is relatively inexpensive and portable, allowing it to be used in various settings. The ability to attain instant information, aids the provider in effectively treating the patient. Injections are even now given under ultrasound to improve visualization of the area to be injected, giving a clear view of the anatomy and allows for maximum placement and results.
For more information on ultrasound and if it would help you get BEYOND BETTER, call our office today at 770-237-3475.
