The Elbow Ultrasound Scan
The elbow joint is a complex joint composed of three communicating joints that share a common synovial membrane. Ultrasound scans are frequently requested for the examination of patients with elbow pain, which is generally caused by overuse syndromes, trauma, inflammatory diseases, or neuropathies. Any activity that involves excessive flexion-extension movements of the elbow can result in undue stress on the ligaments, tendons, and muscles that stabilize the joint. Nerve entrapment as in Radial Tunnel Syndrome, carpal tunnel or median nerve entrapment neuropathy and cubital tunnel or ulnar nerve entrapment neuropathy can also occur. These types of injuries happen gradually over time and can aggravate existing conditions such as Tendonitis. Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow are examples of common overuse injuries.
What is the purpose of this ultrasound scan?
The purpose of this ultrasound scan is to examine your elbow for the diagnosis of Tennis or Golfer's elbow from repetative strain movements and other pathologies.
Reasons for having an elbow scan include:
- Reduced Movement
- Tennis Elbow
- Students Elbow
- Tumours & Cancers
- Nerve entrapment
What is included with this elbow ultrasound scan?
- Ultrasound report and if needed, a follow up recommendation.
Preparation for the elbow ultrasound scan
No preparation is necessary for this ultrasound scan.
What should I expect during the elbow ultrasound scan?
Before the scan our sonographer will explain the examination procedure. The elbow joint is examined while the client is seated with his/her arm resting on the examination table. The technique used depends to some extent on the location of the pain and other clinical findings. The position of the patient's arm will obviously vary depending on the aspect being examined. The joint is studied in both the flexed and extended positions.
About the Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound Scan
Pain and reduced movement are common problems associated with all our joints. Ultrasound is regularly employed to examine the musculo-skeletal system (MSK) as it provides much-needed information about the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue in the body.
An ultrasound scan will help in diagnosis of tendon tears, such as tears of the rotator cuff in the shoulder or Achilles tendon in the ankle, abnormalities of the muscles, such as tears and soft-tissue masses, bleeding or other fluid collections within the muscles or damage to the major joints for common problems such as arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, fluid in the joints, carpal tunnel syndrome etc..
Price: £129.00 (£179 for both elbows)
