MUMS Radiographer – Mr Adrian Burman– offers MusculoSkeletal Scans (MSK).
An MSK scan will assess the major and some minor tendons, ligaments and nerves around the various aspects of the body parts, whether it be related to pain and/or reduced movement from sports injuries, old age or general health conditions such as rheumatology and arthritis.
MSK Scans are safe, non-invasive and reliable. The procedure takes around 15-30 minutes.
There is no need for a referral – you can self-refer for peace of mind.
Gel is used to glide the transducer and pictures and measurements of the MSK area are taken by the Radiographer.
You will be given a detailed report on the day that you can give to your referring clinician and a copy will be in your MUMS electronic medical record should you wish to consult with any of MUMS clinicians or Private GPs
