Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Pain & Rehab Medicine's providers utilize the Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound for the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders.The MSK ultrasound can be used for diagnostic purposes as well as for image guidance in therapeutic injection procedures. This technology is at the cutting edge for musculoskeletal issues and is used to visualize bone, muscle, tendon and ligament anatomy.




Leading the Nation

At BayCare Clinic, our doctors strive to provide exceptional care to Northeast Wisconsin. Our physicians are committed to furthering their education on the latest procedures or innovations to benefit patient care. Two of BayCare Clinic Pain & Rehab Medicine physicians, Dr. Thomas Wilkins and Dr. Danqing Guo, have earned the Registered in Musculoskeletal™ (RMSK™) sonography credential. Drs. Wilkins and Guo were the first in the region and among the first in the nation to have received the RMSK credential.


Using the MSK Ultrasound for Diagnosis

Using the MSK ultrasound, our doctors are able to gain a much better view of a patient's anatomy and pathology in real time. They can see anatomy in motion, and this often allows the ability to find hidden pathology that has not been able to be seen with other diagnostic testing, such as MRI or CAT scans.


The MSK Ultrasound for Image Guidance in Injection Procedures

Our pain and rehab doctors can perform injection procedures under direct visualization of the MSK ultrasound. The ultrasound is used to help guide injections into the precise area of injury. This not only increases the effectiveness of the injection, but it also makes it safer by helping to avoid adjacent structures (i.e., nerve or blood vessels) from inadvertent damage. The end result is less pain and improved function.
