DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND (ECHOGRAPHY)

Pico_pic.gifSoft tissue scans are non-invasive site specific as compared to an MRI. The allows us to view the soft tissue instantaneously and provides an immediate result. The 7.5 mHz -12 mHz transducer (probe) is placed on the area that is causing pain. It is then visualized on the monitor. The site that is in question, if it is injured appears as a black (hypoechoic) area. Inflammation appears this way. Injections can also be guided to a site of inflammation and precisely deposit an anti-inflammatory at this spot. It provides a fast inexpensive test to view soft tissue injuries. The test is performed in office as opposed to going to an outside facility The report is interpreted by one of our accredited doctors in diagnostic ultrasound. Dr. Cozzarelli is a well known author and expert in soft tissue imaging. He is the author of Musculoskeletal Imaging of the Foot and Ankle. The text book was made available to practitioners in 2008. He served as past adjunct professor at New York College of Podiatric Medicine in the Department of Radiology from 2005-2007.
