MSK Ultrasound and Procedures

Musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound is rapidly evolving as a non-invasive tool in the diagnosis and assessment for the management of joint and soft tissue disorders. MSK ultrasound images are used to help diagnose:
  • Tendon tears, such as tears of rotator cuff or Achilles tendon
  • Abnormalities of the muscles such as soft-tissue masses
  • Bleeding or other fluid collections with the muscles and joints
In addition to MSK ultrasound, Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital offers MSK procedures, which are minimally invasive, imaging guided treatments. These procedures typically only require conscious sedation. They include:
  • Bone and soft-tissue biopsies for diagnosis
  • Radiofrequency ablation/cryoablation of bone tumors
  • Vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty for benign and malignant vertebral compression fractures
