Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ankle Ultrasound Scan

MUMS Radiographer – Mr Adrian Burman offers MSK Ankle Ultrasound Scans to patients aged 16 and over.

A MSK ankle scan will assess the major and some minor tendons, ligaments and nerves around the ankle, whether it be related to pain and/or reduced movement from sports injuries, old age or general health conditions such as rheumatology and arthritis.  

Ankle USS sound waves produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, bone and soft tissues of the foot. The radiographer can diagnose abnormalities of the muscles, for example tears and soft tissue masses. Foreign bodies can be seen as can bleeding, infection and some types of fluid collection. Ultrasound can diagnose benign and malignant soft tissue tumours. Arthritis can be seen on ankle ultrasound. MUMS radiographer will diagnose tendon tears, for example – achilles tendon.

Ankle ligaments that stabilise the joint can be seen and evaluated for osteoarthritic changes and joint effusions.
