I started using ultrasound because although I did a lot of courses to help me learn how to do blind injections or palpation-guided injections, I was nervous that I’d hurt somebody and I saw ultrasound as a way to improve my patient’s safety,” says Dr. Frank Johnson, a sports medicine physician practicing in Alberta, Canada.
Now Dr. Johnson is the only sports medicine physician in Canada with an RMSK Certification and teaches other clinicians Sport Medicine Ultrasound with other tutors across Canada. Students in his classes have the opportunity to use the Clarius L15 HD3.
The Clarius L15 HD3 is the perfect probe for sports medicine,” he says. “It can see that first two and a half to three centimeters exceptionally well. There are other machines out there on the market that we would call kind of an all-in-one, that can be everything to everybody, but we all know that’s a fantasy. The L15 HD3 is perfect for sports medicine.”
