Dynamic ultrasound diagnosis of sciatic nerve in hamstring injury

Case summary

Fernando Jiménez Díaz, President of SEECO, explores diagnosing sciatica in a 43-year-old athlete with persistent pain post-rehab. Dynamic ultrasound using ProbeFix Dynamic identifies nerve compression missed by traditional tests. This approach offers a swift, cost-effective alternative to MRI, improving musculoskeletal injury diagnosis and treatment.

Key Advantages 

1 ProbeFix Dynamic enables dynamic diagnosis of musculoskeletal injuries and their complications. 

2 Real-time imaging during exercise provides valuable information about the source of the patient’s pain and is therefore a valuable resource in cases where the root cause of persistent discomfort is not evident when the ultrasound is performed at rest. 

3 More accurate diagnosis during the first visit, sometimes avoiding additional visits. 

4 Greater overall comfort for the patient. 

5 Avoiding magnetic resonance imaging in some patients, thus saving time and costs. 

6 Faster return to play due to more accurate assessment.
