Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

In Calgary and Regina, our sonographers have specialized training to perform musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasounds which assess the tendons and ligaments that hold the muscles and bones in alignment. This ultrasound also evaluates the joint spaces for fluid or inflammation that may limit joint movement. If an injury to your tendon or muscle is suspected, we can see if it’s intact or torn. MSK ultrasound can help determine the extent of the injury, sometimes clarify if surgery is indicated, and assess how well these injuries are healing.
