Real Time Ultrasound Imaging
Real Time Ultrasound Imaging (RTUI) is regularly employed by SportsMed Subiaco’s Physiotherapists to assess the anatomy and function of specific muscle groups.
RTUI provides valuable and measurable information about muscle bulk/atrophy, activation, endurance and strength. All of which can contribute to your condition. RTUI assessment and retraining is a specialised area of physiotherapy and at SportsMed Subiaco, all of our staff have the training and experience to incorporate RTUI into everyday consultations where appropriate.
Advantages of RTUI:
- Enables patients to visualise individual muscles and muscle groups
- Provides clear, objective assessment of neuromuscular function
- Useful feedback device for muscle retraining and rehabilitation
Muscle Groups Commonly Assessed:
- Pelvic floor muscles
- Hip & gluteal muscles
- Back extensors
- Deep neck flexors
Please ask your physiotherapist if you are interested in undergoing RTUI assessment or call today to book a RTUI appointment with one of our experienced clinicians.
Normal private health insurance rebates apply to RTUI performed by a qualified physiotherapist.
