Ultrasound scanning is a safe and painless diagnostic tool used to examine many different parts of the body such as liver, gall bladder and pelvis. Ultrasound is also very useful in identifying musculoskeletal injuries in joints such as the knees or shoulders. It uses sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside your body. As Ultrasound uses sound waves and not radiation, it is thought to be harmless.
Ultrasound is also good in assessing functions and has dynamic features which are frequently used to help interventional radiologists to guide joint injections.
