Musculoskeletal or Extremity Ultrasound

Musculoskeletal or Extremity Non-Vascular Ultrasound is an exam that obtains images of the area of interest (examples could be arm, leg, knee, shoulder, foot).


  • You will lie on the exam table with the area of interest exposed (arms or legs).
  • A non-greasy gel will be applied to the skin during the exam.
  • The sonographer will use a handheld transducer to obtain images.


  • Bring a prescription if your doctor has given one to you.
  • If you are scheduled for a musculoskeletal procedure rather than a scan, you will be contacted prior to your appointment with test preparation information.


  • Bring list of medications.
  • Let technologist know if you’ve had any previous surgeries.
