Ultrasonography, or ultrasound, is a scan performed to examine soft tissue and joint injuries. It can also be utilised to examine swelling for signs of inflammation.
It is a non-invasive investigation which has certain benefits over MRI. It is less expensive than MRI and for certain instances it has been shown to be more sensitive in detecting injury.
We are one of the few physiotherapy clinics who provide a specialist ultrasonography service. Patrick is one of the very few physiotherapists in Ireland who is also trained in musculoskeletal ultrasonography. By offering this service, it means ABSOLUTE.PHYSIO is the ideal setting for injury assessment, diagnosis and management
