Real Time Ultrasound Real time ultrasound is a safe, cost-effective and a readily accessible method of examination. This powerful scanning tool can assist in diagnosis of soft tissue injuries. This can also be used for providing excellent feedback for muscle retraining. Tissues, including muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments and bursae are imaged in ‘real-time’, which means movements of anatomical structures can be observed as they actually occur, thereby resulting in appropriate rehabilitation to the affected areas.
