Modrychi rehabilitation center equipped with the most modern equipment, in particular, ultrasound scanner expert class. The unit not only produces photos but also video recording. And most importantly - it allows you to examine the joints.
The advantages of ultrasound in the study of the joints compared to other instrumental methods:
diagnosis is carried out in real time and allows you to examine the joints in motion;
in contrast to the X-ray examination can be fluid visualization in joint cavities;
detection of foreign bodies of any size (less than 0.5 mm), in particular, inaccessible to the x-ray method of investigation;
unlike MRI imaging possible collateral ligament (MRI they are "blind zones");
advanced Doppler technique provides a measure of blood flow in the tumor area and the inflammatory changes to clarify the diagnosis;
separate high capacity new generation of ultrasound with the use of high-frequency sensors provide precision boundary studies.
research can be carried out repeatedly, there are no contraindications;
Indications for Ultrasound joints:
pain in the joint;
increase in the volume of the joint, swelling;
traumatic joint injury (fresh injury or the presence of a history of trauma);
Rheumatic diseases - the defeat of the musculoskeletal system: joints, muscles, ligaments, and bones;
limitation of movement in the joint;
inflammation, acute and chronic diseases;
dynamic observation with bursitis;
palpable mass in the soft tissue area;
dynamic monitoring during the treatment of inflammatory diseases of the joints, tendons;
osteochondropathy (for suspected based on clinical manifestations, confirmed by X-ray);
dynamic observation in the course of the treatment of traumatic injury of muscles, tendons, ligaments (partial and complete tears, sprains).
dynamic observation of degenerative joint diseases.
Capabilities of Ultrasound joints:
confirmation of the diagnosis, staging, degree of expression and the individual characteristics of the pathological process in case of damage;
The ability to not only confirm, but refute this or that diagnosis.
determination of the existence tumor-like entities to determine their relation to the surrounding anatomical structures;
An accurate topical diagnosis of pathological process (for example, determining the level of damage to the ligament or tendon).
finding the location of a foreign body, not only in relation to the skin and bones, but also in relation to the surrounding muscles and tendons;
Detecting the early stages of the inflammatory and destructive changes in the joints and soft tissue components.
More information about the disease process derived from research (degree of destruction of a structure, the distance between the fragments of the damaged tendon) can be used to determine treatment tactics, individual approach to conservative treatment, a detailed preoperative planning, the creation of conditions for the operation with the least injury.
Special importance is the method of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of traumatic injuries of the musculoskeletal system, including tendon injuries, ligaments and muscles. Timely diagnosis can reliably establish not only the existence of injury, but also to determine the nature and degree of traumatic injury of a particular anatomical structure.
Determining a minimum free volume of fluid in the joint cavity and in peri bags assessment of the nature of the fluid.
At the stage of rehabilitation treatment ultrasound to evaluate the processes of regeneration of anatomical structures and to develop an individual plan for a comprehensive rehabilitation therapy for each patient, as well as early detection of possible complications and recurrence of pathological processes.
