Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSUS) MSUS- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is a non-invasive study that uses high frequency sound waves to create images of the body and provide information about the overall morphology of the body structures. This test is helpful in differentiating soft tissues and can also show inflammation in the spine, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
NCV- Nerve Conduction Velocities measure both motor and sensory nerve function to record their action potentials. The time it takes for the nerve to respond is measured during this process as well. NCV’s identify peripheral nerve dysfunction and neuropathies.
