Ultrasound Guided Injections

Posted by Darlene on 8/07/04 at 18:34 (157173)

My radiologist recommended an ultrasound guided injection of cortisone into what looks like the beginning of a neuroma. This makes so much sense to me rather than doing it blind.

Wouldn't this be a great way to do the alcohol injections?

Darlene:
Using ultrasound can be helpful. Although, an experienced practitioner knows where to inject with or without ultrasound as it is hard to miss the neuroma when done properly.
