Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS)

With the emergence of this new technology we can now perform musculoskeletal screening with out always needing to do inernal work when it comes to assessing Pelvic Floor Function. The machine used is the same machine you may find in your local Radiology department but ours is only set up for MSK screening and not for diagnosis of conditions. The power of using RTUS is that this technology has the power to enable the patient to see the pelvic floor or abdominal muscles working in real time before and after an intervention and thus enables them to know they can engage these muscles appropriately and in synchronisation with surrounding musculature. For best results you need to have at least 1/2 to 1 cup of urine in your bladder so that the pelvic floor is easily visible. We provide the RTUS screening as part of our routine assessment and there is no additional charge
