Britt Carr Benson, DVM

Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound in small animals is becoming a valuable and essential tool for diagnosing and treating soft tissue injuries in the world of canine sports medicine and rehabilitation.

Musculoskeletal ultrasound can distinguish between disruption of tendons/ligaments, muscle lesions, older injuries with scar tissue or calcification, bursitis and tenosynovitis.

Regenerative medicine therapies, such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma, as well as other complimentary therapies can be delivered directly to the site of injury via ultrasound-guided injection.

Advantages To Using Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

  • Can be performed without anesthesia in many cases
  • Allows for visualization of the tissues during movement
  • Lower cost than MRI or CT
