Private Knee Ultrasound
Private knee ultrasound can provide useful information on a wide range of pathologic conditions affecting knee joint components like tendons and muscles, ligaments, bursae and cysts, synovial space, articular cartilage, surrounding soft tissues, peripheral nerve, or vascular abnormalities. Colour and power Doppler knee ultrasound can be used to measure neovascularization within the synovial lining of the joints, tendons, and soft-tissue masses.
