COMMON CONDITIONS TREATED WITH ULTRASOUND GUIDED INJECTIONS?
Ultrasound images are typically used to help diagnose:
– Shoulder: Tendon tears or inflammation/tendinitis of the rotator cuff in the shoulder. Calcific tendinitis.
– Elbow – Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow- inflammation of the tendons, bursitis, muscle and tendon tears.
– Wrist and Hand: Wrist and hand tendons and tendon sheaths to diagnose tenosynovitis as De Quervain tenosynovitis, Ganglion cysts and small joint arthritis. Flexor, extensor Finger tendon tears and trigger finger Helps to identify Carpal tunnel syndrome-related structural abnormalities.
– Hip: Trochanteric bursitis, Tendinosis and joint effusion including arthritis. Sportsman hernia, Groin pain.
– Knee: Knee tendons as rupture or inflammation. Joint effusion, Ligament tears and arthritis.
– Ankle: Achilles tendon tear/inflammation, Tennis leg and other tendons in the ankle. Tenosynovitis of ankle and foot tendons.
– Foot: Plantar Fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, bursitis or metatarsalgia.
– Muscle tears, masses, or fluid collections.
– Ligament sprains or tears.
– Early changes of rheumatoid arthritis.

ADVANTAGES OF ULTRASOUND GUIDED INJECTIONS?
There is a significant body of research which demonstrates that ultrasound-guided injections give better outcomes such as improved levels of pain relief, longer-lasting benefits, and improved post-injection function of the injected area, compared with injections that are done without ultrasound guidance (e.g.blind/surface marked injections).
There is also growing evidence that guiding the injection reduces the risk of trauma to local tissues or misplacement of the needle and/or the injection substance. This improves the safety of the injection and reduces the risk of adverse events associated with injection therapy. Because the location of the injection is more precisely known it reduces the chances of having unnecessary injections.
Many patients find ultrasound-guided injections to be more comfortable as often the required depth of the injection can be reduced
Benefits of ultrasound-guided injection
Ultrasound scanning is non-invasive and painless (no needles or injections).
Ultrasound imaging is extremely safe and does not use X- radiation.
Occasionally, an ultrasound exam may be temporarily uncomfortable, but it should not be painful.
Ultrasound is widely available, easy to use, and less expensive than most other imaging methods.
Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues that do not show up well on x-ray images.
Ultrasound provides real-time imaging. This makes it a good tool for guiding minimally invasive procedures such as needle biopsies, fluid aspiration, and treatment of tendon inflammations.
Patients with certain cardiac pacemakers and metallic implants or fragments in the body often cannot be safely exposed to the strong magnetic field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); however, patients can safely receive ultrasound imaging.
Ultrasound is also an excellent alternative to MRI for claustrophobic patients.
Compared to MRI, ultrasound may provide greater internal detail when assessing soft tissue structures such as tendons and nerves.
The unique ability to capture real-time images gives ultrasound an edge to see the dynamic movement of tendons, joints or an extremity.
Ultrasound imaging is faster than MRI and does not require the patient to remain completely still, allowing infants to be imaged without sedation.
HOW LONG WILL THE ULTRASOUND GUIDED CORTICOSTEROID INJECTIONS LAST?
This will depend upon a number of factors including the nature and severity of the problem for which you are having the injection. Sometimes there is no improvement but the longer lasting less soluble steroids can be effective for many months. It is important you listen to the advice of your physiotherapist and continue with the exercise programme and make any lifestyle changes he or she recommends.
WHAT PREPARATION DO I NEED FOR A MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND?
No specific pre-test special preparation is needed. You can leave jewellery at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown.
