Ultrasound-guided intervention has enjoyed a period of unprecedented growth because its many advantages over other guidance modalities have been recognized.
The decreased procedure time, increased accuracy, and safety of procedures performed under ultrasound guidance are of obvious benefit to pain doctor and patient alike for all interventional applications.
The ultrasound gives the ability to continuously see the needle tip, to differentiate the various layers of tissues, to gauge the depth of the needle tip, to avoid the arteries, veins and nerves, to see the spread of the medicine and to visualize any inflammatory fluid that can be aspirated. These practical advantages are making doctors use ultrasound guidance in more and more procedures. The medical literature is frequently reporting the efficacy and safety of ultrasound guidance in novel procedures.
Some of these advantages are shared by fluoroscopy or x-ray guided procedures, but the ultrasound is inherently far safer because of the absence of any exposure to radiation, though the radiation in x-ray guidance is also quite less. The ultrasound is also much easier to handle because it is a single person operation. Barring a few procedures which involve injection at a greater depth than the ultrasound can manage or the involvement of a lot of bones, the ultrasound is gaining popularity in almost all injections.
All these advantages can be brought to full fruition by a doctor who is an expert in handling the ultrasound and who is also experienced in deciding where to inject based on the pain history and examination. Dr Nitish is one such doctor, renowned in Bangalore for his clinical skills and realistic approach.
