Musculoskeletal Ultrasounds to Diagnose Gout & Other Rheumatic Diseases

Some patients with rheumatic diseases may benefit from having a musculoskeletal ultrasound. Musculoskeletal ultrasounds are special types of ultrasounds that examine your muscles, bones, ligaments, and joints. They can help diagnose rheumatic diseases like gout and rheumatoid arthritis.
