Diagnostic Ultrasound

Available at our O’Fallen location.

gateway radiology consultantsBack Pain Center, in partnership with Gateway Radiology Consultants, is excited to provide onsite Musculoskeletal Diagnostic Ultrasound. Diagnostic Ultrasound is a radiation-free imaging technique used to visualize structures including bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.

As opposed to other imaging techniques such as x-ray and standard MRI, diagnostic ultrasound allows structures to be visualized under active movement, and provides immediate onsite results.


Diagnostic ultrasound is an effective tool used to diagnose soft tissue injuries in muscles and ligaments that cannot be seen on x-rays, and because it does not utilize radiation, it is safer.

Cost-effective and Functional

Diagnostic Ultrasound provides an affordable alternative to MR imaging. Unlike x-ray and MRI, ultrasound can visualize moving structures, allowing assessment of structures in painful positions. Motion analysis allows real time diagnosis of a variety of athletic and non-athletic injuries.

Onsite Services

Onsite imaging services provide immediate diagnosis. Immediate results allow faster and more accurate treatment.
