What about X-Rays then? I thought that they are used to show upbroken or strained muscles or bones.
traditional plain X-rays pose very little use in the imaging of soft tissues such as the brain or muscle. Imaging alternatives for soft tissues are computed axial tomography (CAT or CT scanning), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound.
My aunt was a doctor and I ask her about that and she told me that ultrasound is one of the most frequently prescribed treatments for one of the most common sport and athletic injuries. And there's really no good scientific evidence showing that it treats injured muscles effectively. Ultrasound therapy does nothing to help an injured skeletal muscle heal any faster.
Paul Anderson asked the Naked Scientists:Is ultrasound any good for showing damaged muscles? I carried a heavy bag last November thinking I was avoiding having to make two trips with it, and I think I damaged something in my neck from the weight of the strap on the side of my neck.RegardsPaulNZWhat do you think?
