MSK Ultrasound / Joint Injections

Musculoskeletal ultrasound is the use of a sophisticated ultrasound machine to help guide soft-tissue injections. While fluoroscopy is used for many joint injections or spine injections, the advantage of MSK ultrasound is that it can help guide injections for tendon and ligament injections. It can also be used to diagnose things like rotator cuff tears, tendon, muscle, or ligament tears, and nerve entrapment.


What sets us apart from most clinics is the combined use of sophisticated fluoroscopy techniques and MSK ultrasound. Most clinics use neither, and the few that do use imaging guidance of injections use either MSK ultrasound or fluoroscopy, but rarely the two technologies together. We often utilize both at the same time to ensure utmost precision.
