Ultrasound uses nonharmful ultra high-frequency sound waves to create images of the human body to aid in the diagnosis of many conditions, which may well otherwise go undetected or misdiagnosed.
Ultrasound has the advantage of allowing dynamic assessment of the joints, tendons, and muscles in numerous areas of the body that would otherwise be impossible to dynamically assess via other imaging modalities.
