Ultrasound utilizes sound waves to produce images and does not include radiation. Commonly associated in obstetrics or vascular imaging, it is increasingly used for musculoskeletal purposes. Utilizing the laptop-sized machine, imaging of joints and musculature can be performed right in the office. Injection guidance can also be performed as real-time images allow for observation of a needle and medicine to be placed in the appropriately intended location.
Though this can be performed right in the office, you will be required to have an appointment for the ultrasound scheduled in advance. This allows for appropriate time allocation for our physicians to perform quality injections or imaging.
