Conventional ultrasound transducers are handheld instruments, effectively coming between clinician and patient. As an extension of the hand, the linear finger probe that was used created a fingertip that could “see” and transmit its images to provide traditional hands-on contact.

Medical professionals frequently say that one can never know to spend more time using the method.

Using MSK Ultrasound in Physiotherapy
