UHealth Radiologists are an integral part of the UHealth Sports Medicine team.
Interventional & Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Services
Our musculoskeletal radiologists are a subspecialized radiology group, fellowship-trained and certified in musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound, who have created an innovative, University-based research, diagnostic, and treatment center in South Florida.
During the past decade, there have been significant increases in the clinical applications of MSK ultrasound due to several inherent advantages. Sonography does not involve radiation or iodinated contrast material and is a safe alternative for pregnant patients, claustrophobic patients, children, patients with medial implants (e.g. pacemakers), and patients with severe contrast allergies. Because of the dynamic real-time nature of sonography, a more targeted examination can be performed which is tailored specifically for each patient. This results in increased diagnostic effectiveness and decreased patient discomfort.
Ultrasound imaging is a cost effective medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of joints and tendons, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.
To provide state-of-the-art subspecialized musculoskeletal interventional radiology services in a timely and cost effective manner to our patients, and to perform innovative research aimed at developing cutting edge technologies and medical advances.
