Real Time Ultrasound

The use of ultrasound imaging in Medical fields for diagnostic purposes is well documented. Ultrasound scanners used as an assessment and treatment for rehabilitative purposes is an emerging field in Allied Health, particularly in Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Osteopathy.

The Sonoscape Physiolite A6 Ultrasound scanner is commonly used by Allied Health practitioners in conjunction with other therapy modalities for the treatment and assessment for these areas: the rehabilitation of back pain, lumbar and core stabilization, and pelvic floor education; the treatment and monitoring of musculoskeletal conditions such as ligament and tendon strains and tears.

When used with the Convex Array transducer, the Sonoscape Physiolite A6 provides a quality resolution image and cine loop. The clear image or playback loop is used as a form of biofeedback, helping to communicate to clients the muscle activity that cannot be”felt” and assist in training voluntary control of internal muscles. With an RTU’s Zoom features, one can hone in on specific structures. The added ability to move Focus Points, practitioners can easily use the same transducer to scan Transverse Abdominus, Multifidus, and Pelvic Floor muscles with ease. When used with the Linear Array transducer, specific structures as superficial as 1mm below the skin's surface, as required by Podiatrists, can be easily viewed.
