Ultra-sound guided injections

The use of ultrasound-guidance in intraarticular injections is an approach that can improve the overall treatment of knee Osteoarthritis, which will improve treatment costs as a patient’s need for additional expensive treatments can be reduced. When physicians use ultrasound and a technique called hydrodissection performed with precise new mechanical syringes to inject the joint, the patient experiences less pain, improved safety, a better response to medications, and less need for other medical therapy. Doctors are increasingly using ultrasound, and patients should be aware that joint injections may be more effective and less painful if their physician offers this option to them.
