Ultrasound examination is particularly helpful in assessing the locomotor system.
In our center, a specialist doctor can see the condition of soft tissues, which include ligaments, joint capsules, synovial bursae, muscles and fascia. The most frequently examined joints are the knee joint, shoulder joint, elbow joint and ankle joint. During the examination itself, you can detect, among others. ongoing inflammation, rupture (of muscles, capsule or ligaments), swelling and cysts. Ultrasound of the musculoskeletal system is useful both in the assessment of structures after trauma and in the situation of chronic pain. In our center, we also perform transepithelial ultrasound, which is a useful tool for the detection of ischemic changes in the brain, calcifications, infections and major structural anomalies in both term and premature infants. During the performance and interpretation of transfluidity tests, the doctor assesses the anatomical structure of the brain and the features of its maturity. Another test performed at the “Troniny” Rehabilitation Center is ultrasound of joints hip imaging is an imaging test performed in every child to detect dysplasia. It should be performed on the newborn after birth and in the first few weeks of your baby’s life. In the case of only minor irregularities in the examination of the joints in an infant, an appropriate diaper technique is sufficient. The doctor will recommend placing the baby on his stomach frequently and so-called. wide diaper rash. If, on the other hand, ultrasound of the hip joint is diagnosed with dysplasia, it is necessary to put on the so-called hip brace. This apparatus supports the infant’s legs in the abduction and flexion position, which ensures optimal positioning of the femoral head in the acetabulum.
