Musculoskeletal scans use ultrasound imaging to produce images of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body. The lower limb scan (also known as the leg scan) covers the area of the hip, thigh, knee, ankle and foot. The upper limb scans cover the area of the shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist and hands. Many conditions can be diagnosed with musculoskeletal scans as the real time imaging allows for a detailed examination of the affected area. This is particularly useful for demonstrating causes of pain, muscle and tendon tears. Ultrasound maybe one of the investigations you require, however you should consult your GP to ensure that any other investigations can be arranged.

"We have now had 3 scans at the Brentwood branch, and the staff are lovely! This has been our favourite private clinic.. the sonographer Teresa is lovely, she explains everything in so much detail and doesn’t rush through the scan! No doubt we will be back again before our baby comes."Hayley Kitt
