Ultrasound Guided Medication Injection
Injection of medication can help reduce inflammation and swelling of joints or tendons. This may in turn reduce pain and other symptoms.
Ultrasound guidance ensures accurate injection of a medication into the target area.
Joint Injections at Access MRI
Access MRI offers ultrasound guided medication injections.
Some medications work best when they are directly injected into a specific part of the body. Using ultrasound guidance, the doctor performing the injection procedure is able to ensure the needle is properly positioned before an injection is performed.
Ultrasound video images are constantly updated during needle placement.
Medications injected this way include anti-inflammatories (steroids), local anaesthetics for immediate pain relief and viscosity supplementation medications which add lubrication to joints to reduce friction and symptoms.
