  • Ultrasound Guided Injection Explained

    When performing guided injections into joints, tendons and bursas, Ultrasound is extremely helpful in heightening accuracy of needle placement which improves the effectiveness of the injection.

  • Please advise us beforehand

    If you are on anticoagulants such as Warfarin or if you are a diabetic as some injections may effect your sugar levels.

    If you are, or may be, pregnant.

  • Preparation

    Please bring your referral, Medicare and/or Pension Health Care Card and any previous imaging relating the the region being scanned.

    No preparation is required.

  • What happens during the procedure

    You may be asked to change into a gown and be comfortably positioned so that the area being examined is most accessible. Ultrasound scans are taken to locate the exact position. The skin in the area is sterilised with antiseptic and a local anaesthetic is given. The injection is then performed, being guided into the correct area via ultrasound.

  • How long does it take

    Approx 15-30 minutes.

  • After Your Examination

    If local anaesthetic has been used, you may not feel any pain for a few hours. Depending on the type of injection, you may not be able to drive for approx 6 hours afterwards.

  • Possible Complications

    There is a minor risk of infection post injection. Plese seek medical advice if you experience a high temperature.

    Female patients who have a steriod injection may notice changes in their menstrual cycle.

    Diabetics should closely monitor their blood sugars for 5 days after an injection

    Please ask our staff for further information on this topic.

An ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive examination that uses very high frequency sound waves to produce high resolution images on almost all body parts.
