The Diagnostic Procedure

Neuromuscular ultrasound is used to diagnose neuromuscular diseases and determine the best treatment methods. This type of ultrasound focuses on images of the muscles and nerves. The technology behind this exam has continued to evolve and improve over the years. Because it is accurate, non-invasive, relatively inexpensive, and safe, ultrasound is a reliable method for diagnosing a variety of diseases and disorders.

Neuromuscular ultrasound is useful for diagnosing:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neuropathies
  • Dropfoot
  • Other conditions of the nerves and muscles

Often, Dr. Wong combines other testing methods with neuromuscular ultrasound in San Antonio to provide an accurate diagnosis for patients.
