HELP What does an Ultra Sound Scan show?
« on: October 19, 2005, 08:46:51 PM »
Can anyone please tell me what these ultra sound scans are supposed to show?  I had one recently and was told "it doesn't see far enough into the joint"?  So what don't they show that maybe something else would?   :-\

Thanks in advance for replies.

Ultra sounds are not the best thing to have when dealing with bone injury, you my be better off having an MRI scan, or standings xrays, they give a much better picture of what is going on insdie your joints.

Hopw this helps a little.
