Ultrasound Guided Pain Relief Injections
These are cortisone injections performed by a radiologist with the guidance of an Ultrasound machine. Using the Ultrasound makes sure that the mediations that the radiologists inject are going into the correct area to offer maximum relief from your symptoms. These injections are mainly used for soft tissue areas and small joints.
CT Guided Pain Relief Injections
These are cortisone injections performed by a radiologist with the guidance of a CT machine. These injections are for targeted relief of pain in large joints such as hips and knees for osteo arthritis, facet joint pain in the spine, nerve root pain in the spine and epidural injections. The CT guidance assists the radiologist in placing the needle in an accurate position for the procedure to work.
