What is an Ultrasound Guided Injection?
Ultrasound guided injection is a procedure in which steroid is injected into a specific structure (tendon sheaths, joints or bursae). An ultrasound machine is used to provide the doctor with a clear picture of the anatomy of the structures, to ensure the steroid is injected into the desired location. The steroid then has a strong anti-inflammatory effect on the structure it is injected into. Reducing inflammation can provide symptomtic relief such as improvement of mobility and pain reduction.
Many musculoskeletal inflammatory conditions can benefit from injection of steroid by a specialist, such as bursitis, tenosynovitis, ganglions, arthritis or gout.
