Ultrasound-Guided Injections

Many injections are performed without ‘image-guidance’, however research has consistently shown that using ultrasound imaging to guide the placement of the injection is more accurate. 

Most injections can be performed under ultrasound guidance. This means that the clinician will be able to directly visualise the needle ‘real-time’ like watching something happen live on TV. This therefore improves the accuracy of the injection meaning that the substance being injected (injectate) is directed exactly at the intended location.  Improved accuracy means improved safety, improved effectiveness for some injections, and also allows some advanced treatments to be undertaken that cannot be done without image-guidance.
