Ultrasound of the musculoskeletal system at Eskulap clinic in London.

Shoulder ultrasound scan in London.

Shoulder ultrasound is used consistently in assessing the shoulder joint. It is a quick, painless ultrasound and is easily accessible. It is also a dynamic, unlikely MRI examination, so muscles, tendons, rotator cuff and soft tissue can be assessed in real time and on the move.

The shoulder and the rotator cuff are examined: we will assess the joint, the tendons of the rotator cuff: (tendon and sheath of the biceps brachii, subscapular, supraspinatus and subcapsular tendons), muscles, ligaments, bursa and possible swelling of soft tissues. The rotator cuff holds the shoulder joint together. Rotator cuff tendon problems can cause a lot of shoulder problems, which are becoming more common due to stress and tension.

What is the purpose of shoulder ultrasound?

The purpose of this shoulder ultrasound scan is to ultrasound the major musculoskeletal structures of the shoulder and to evaluate the rotator cuff. They include:

  • Biceps tendon
  • Subscapularis
  • Ssupraspinatus
  • Infraspinatus
  • Teres Minor
  • Deltoid muscles
  • Abnormal fluid or inflammation around the shoulder

Reasons for taking a shoulder scan include:

  • Arm pain
  • Rotator cuff problems
  • Rupture
  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
  • Impact
  • Discomfort
  • Rupture of the biceps
  • Inflammation of the biceps tendon
  • Subacromial isthmus syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Joint exudate
  • Vascular pathology
  • Hematomas
  • Soft tissue masses such as ganglia, lipomas
  • Postoperative complications, incl. abscess, swelling

    Ultrasound of the hip and groin in London.

    Hip and groin pain is very common, and ultrasound has proven to be a useful tool in assessing tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves, synovial cavities, articular cartilage, bone surfaces, and joint capsule. The purpose of the ultrasound examination is to detect and localize pathological processes, distinguish between intra-articular and extra-articular pathology.

    Many diseases of the hip joint can be detected by ultrasound, including evaluation of soft tissues, tendons, ligaments, and muscles, as well as bone structures and joint spaces. In patients with sports-related hip pain, ultrasound plays an important role in the dynamic evaluation of iliopsoas tendon crackling, synovial fluid, bursitis, hematoma, and bronchial cyst formation.

    Potential causes of hip discomfort and fever include lumbar abscess, prostatitis, pelvic inflammation, and urinary tract infections. Ultrasound can help diagnose these conditions, allowing you to start treatment correctly and in a timely manner.

    What is the purpose of ultrasound of the hips and groin?

    The aim of the hip ultrasound is to assess the musculoskeletal structures of the hip joint.

    • Bone structures (femoral head and acetabulum)
    • Cartilage-fibrous structures (acetabular labrum)
    • The layers of cartilage covering the hip joint
    • Capsule-ligament structures
    • Joints Synovia
    • Muscles and tendons
    • Synovial bursa
    • Neurovascular structures

    Reasons for having an ultrasound of the hips include:

    • Pain
    • Damage to muscles and some ligaments (chronic and acute)
    • Bursitis
    • Joint exudate
    • Vascular pathology
    • Hematomas
    • Soft tissue masses such as ganglia, lipomas
    • Mass classification, e.g. solid, cystic, mixed

    Ultrasound of the elbow and forearm in London.

    The elbow joint is a complex joint made of three interconnected joints that share a common synovium. Ultrasound scans are often required to examine patients with elbow pain, which is usually caused by overload syndromes, trauma, inflammatory diseases, or neuropathies. Any activity that involves excessive flexion and extension of the elbow can place an excessive load on the ligaments, tendons and muscles that stabilize the joint. Nerve entrapment may also occur, such as in radial isthmus syndrome, entrapment neuropathy of the carpal tunnel or median nerve, and entrapment neuropathy of the ulnar or ulnar nerve. These types of injuries appear gradually over time and can worsen existing conditions such as tendinitis. Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are examples of common injuries due to overstrain.

    Thanks to the elbow ultrasound, you can see the joint, tendons, muscles, ligaments, as well as the bursa and the swelling of the soft tissues. Commonly seen for elbow pain on both sides of the elbow (known as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow) is caused by tendinitis. You can also visualize ultra-nervous neuropathy.

    Reasons for taking an ultrasound of the elbow include:

    • Pain
    • Reduced motion
    • Tennis elbow
    • Student’s elbow
    • Tear
    • Cancer and neoplasms
    • Discomfort
    • Inflammation
    • Bursitis
    • Tendinopathy
    • Trapping the nerves

    Knee, foot and ankle scan in London.

    Knee problems and knee pain are common as the knee is a common point of contact in traumatic accidents and is prone to wear due to its stressful nature. It is also a common site for arthritic pain. The knee joint consists of four main structures: bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. The three bones come together to form the knee joint: the femur (femur), the tibia (tibia), and the patella (patella). The knee joint is made up of bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.

    Ultrasound provides useful information on a wide range of conditions affecting parts of the knee, such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, synovial space, articular cartilage, and surrounding soft tissues. It may also rule out / confirm a Baker’s cyst on the back of the knee. The ankle and foot have many tendons, ligaments, and bones, pain or trauma are common causes to investigate the causes of tendinitis, bursitis, and degenerative changes such as arthritis, and joint effusion. Nodules such as ganglia, neuromas, and fibromas can be examined. Painful heels can be scanned to rule out / confirm plantar fasciitis.

    What is the purpose of the knee examination?

    The purpose of this ultrasound of the knee joint is to assess the main musculoskeletal structures of the knee joint. They include:

    • Quadriceps tendon
    • Patellar tendons
    • Bursa
    • Biceps femoris
    • Anterior cruciate ligament
    • Medial collateral ligament
    • Lateral ligament
    • Posterior cruciate ligament

    Hand and wrist ultrasound.

    The bones of the hand and wrist provide the body with support and flexibility to manipulate objects in many different ways. Each hand contains 27 distinct bones that give the hand incredible range and precision of movement. The ulna and the radius of the forearm support many of the muscles that manipulate the bones of the hand and wrist. Although the hand and wrist anatomy is complex and the underlying pathological conditions are varied, many disease processes are localized, and in many situations the clinical question is specific and limited. For this reason, ultrasound has always been an attractive imaging method for assessing hand and wrist problems.

    Specific situations in which ultrasound has unquestionable benefits include the assessment of tendon inflammation and rupture, the assessment of palpable masses or the suspicion of latent masses, and the assessment of suspected foreign bodies. Hand and wrist injuries are also common in athletes and can affect articular structures (ligaments, joint surfaces, etc.), periarticular tendons, muscles, and nerves. These injuries may be acute or chronic. Acute injuries follow sudden traumatic events, such as falls or sprains of joints. Chronic changes may be the result of repeated local microtrauma or the consequences of acute trauma.

    Ultrasound shows inflammation and rupture of the tendon, nodules and nodules, and even glass or a thorn (foreign bodies) are also visible in the finger area. Hand and wrist injuries are also common and can affect ligaments, joint surfaces, tendons, muscles, and nerves.

    What is the purpose of the hand and wrist ultrasound examination?

    The purpose of this hand ultrasound is to assess the anatomy of your hand:

    • Finger flexor
    • Tendons
    • Palmar fascia
    • Elbow collateral ligament
    • Carpal tunnel, ulnar nerve
    • Distal elbow joint
    • Middle wrist joints
    • Triangular complex of fibrous cartilage
    • Six rectifier compartments
    • Abnormal fluid or inflammation around the wrist
