DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND

Chris Myers and Dave Baker are clinical directors at Complete Physio and are highly specialised physiotherapists who have trained in the use of diagnostic ultrasound to help to diagnose muscle, tendon, ligament and joint problems. Diagnostic ultrasound technology has improved significantly over the past 15 years and is an effective imaging modality in sports medicine. Technological advancement means that ultrasound is now considered to be superior to MRI scans for visualising and diagnosing certain tendon, ligament and muscle complaints.

These include the Achilles, patella and rotator cuff (shoulder) tendons and the tendons involved in tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow. Accurate diagnosis is key to implementing the most effective treatment regime for your recovery and diagnostic ultrasound can provide an effective adjunct in this process.

Please note we are unfortunately not able to provide CD discs of scans taken from our machines. Also, we recommend use of ultrasound provided in clinic as an accessible first line of assessment and will inform patients if a formal MRI scan or ultrasound preformed on high frequency machine and radiological setting is recommended.

Please note we do NOT scan:

  • lumps and bumps
  • the abdominal region
  • the spine
  • hernias
