Bone Fracture Detection Using Ultrasound
A prototype was proposed to detect fracture continuously using ultrasound allowing patients' to monitor bone fracture healing progress at home which saves time and money spent on redundant visits to hospitals during recovery period and minimizes the risks of x-ray exposures during healing process. This prototype utilizes ultrasound capabilities to accelerate bone fracture healing and therapeutic outcomes of ultrasound as a treatment modality commonly used in physical therapy is a supporting advantage that can eliminate the physical therapy sessions required after fracture recovery to safely getting back normal physical activities lost during the disuse of muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments.
