Ultrasound is a commonly used non-invasive imaging technique used to visualize soft tissue such as muscles, tendons, and organs as well as blood flow with real time images which aids in diagnostic evaluation. Orthopedic physicians use advanced treatments including ultrasound guided injections to ensure accurate positioning of needle placement for injections and aspirations.

Reasons why Ultrasound guided injections are used in our office are to ensure accurate positioning of needle placement, possible longer lasting results due to improved accuracy, allows surgeon to observe complete spread of injected material, and assists with documentation for insurance purposes
