NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Dr. Alexander Kulick, Integrative Medicine Doctor in New York City, is improving the identification of meniscal pathology in patients' through the use of ultrasonography examination.
After a recent study, it has been proven that 47% of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests result in misdiagnosis of meniscal injuries. Ultrasonographic examination of the knee overcomes the shortcomings of the traditional MRI. In fact, the study found that ultrasonography is two times more accurate than an MRI in determining the presence or absence of meniscal pathology. Ultrasonographic examination is an exceptional point-of-injury diagnostic modality for meniscal injuries.
"Ultrasonographic examination is more effective in diagnosing meniscal injuries, more convenient and less expensive." - Dr. Alexander Kulick
