Methods for the diagnosis of orthopedic conditions are:
- Arthrography: Arthrography is a specialized X-ray of the joints such as knees, shoulders, elbows, or others. It is routinely performed for accurate assessment of bone injuries and offers greater detail when compared to a normal x-ray. Using a thin needle that injects a contrast dye into the joint to offer greater clarity and thereby aid improved diagnosis.
- Doppler Ultrasound: Doppler ultrasound deploys high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow to the limbs. A non-invasive, pain-free procedure, a doppler ultrasound can reveal blocked arteries at an early stat and help an orthopaedic understand bone or joint ailments caused by lack of adequate blood flow.
- Electromyography: Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure that analyses the health condition of muscles. Studying the electrical activity of the skeletal muscles, the test helps doctors understand the condition of the musculoskeletal structure and its underlying ailments.
