Our Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Clinic enables our patients to access musculoskeletal ultrasound services at affordable prices.

The UCO Clinic partnered with the Sports Medicine Ultrasound Group (SMUG) - the leading provider of musculoskeletal ultrasound courses in the UK - in order to provide our students with the opportunity to develop their skills under tuition from experts in the field with real patients. The partnership also provides UCO patients with the opportunity to access musculoskeletal ultrasound services at affordable prices.

Patients will be referred to the diagnostic ultrasound clinic at the UCO by their student/qualified osteopaths for a scan in order to gather more information about their current complaint and to help determine the best treatment for them. 

Appointments will last approximately half an hour and the scan will be carried out by SMUG students, all of whom are qualified health care professionals. SMUG students are undertaking the mentorship programme in diagnostic ultrasound, under the supervision of a highly experienced SMUG tutor. Patients will need to book a further appointment with their student osteopath to receive the results of their scan and discuss how the scan results effect their treatment and management, and what the options are at this stage.
