Dr Weglein is one of the only physicians in Houston Certified in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, R-MSK
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK) can now be used to visualize: Bone, Muscle, Tendon, and Ligament anatomy. This technology is at the cutting edge of sports- orthopedic diagnosis. Dr. Weglein is trained in MSK Ultrasound and utilizes this procedure in his clinic. There are two main uses of ultrasound in orthopedic- sports medicine:
- Image guidance in procedures
The MSK ultrasound can allow a physician who is trained to gain a much better idea of the anatomy and pathology in real time. We can see the anatomy in motion, and this often allows us to find hidden pathology that has not been seen with other diagnostic testing, such as MRI and CAT scan.
Image guidance in procedures
We also do our injection procedures under direct visualization of ultrasound. This allows Dr. Weglein to see the pathology and to make sure the needle is placed precisely in the correct position. This precision guidance allows for maximal results in our treatment procedures.
