What happens during an ultrasound examination?

Ultrasound is a safe and painless method of examining parts of the body using high frequency sound waves, this produces a picture onto a
screen to guide the joint injection.

There is no real preparation for the examination other then to make sure that the body part to be scanned is easily accessible and not covered by clothing so that it can be easily scanned. During your appointment, you will  usually be asked to sit on a chair or examination plinth or asked to lie either face down or face up. In order to get the best quality images you will be asked to hold your limbs in specific positions.

Once you are properly positioned a sheet of tissue paper may be placed over you to protect any clothing from the ultrasound gel. The gel will be applied to your skin and can easily be wiped off at the end of the examination. This gel is water soluble and will not cause damage to your skin or clothing.

The ultrasound probe will rest on our skin in the area of the injection performed and will be moved in different directions to visualise surrounding soft tissue and guide the needle for the ultrasound injections.

Sonoscope offers joint injections, tendon injections, knee injections and hip injections for joint pain.

5 star reviews Sonoscope

Attentive and professional


I saw Dr.Mast at the London clinic, as I have an injury on my right foot and waiting times from the NHS providers are impossible at the moment. I was given an appointment quickly (thankfully, as the pain was getting unbearable and affects my ability to work) and him and his nurse were attentive and professional. He explained what he was seeing on the ultrasound scan, and the local anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroid injection went without incident. I will be going back in 6-8 months as needed!

Expert physiotherapy


As a keen club runner - having run over 18 full marathons and 2 ultra-marathons - Rob’s combined expert physiotherapy and steroids ultrasound guided injection skills have allowed me to compete at 3 ‘A race’ events over the past 10 years. Without his specialised ultrasound guided injection skills, two separate knee and an ankle injury would have prevented me from running and wasted months of training. I would recommend Rob unreservedly.

5 star reviews Sonoscope

Highly recommend


I had a chronically inflamed bursa in my shoulder for almost two years. Nothing helped. I had injections done at hospitals as well but still no help. I walked around with pain for a long time and had trouble sleeping and affected my family life.
I then had an injection at Sonoscope. The ultrasound guided injection was done by Rob, who clearly knew his stuff and explained the injection approach in detail. He made me feel at ease. The needle placement was almost painless with no side effects and exactly into the bursa. Within a week, I was pain free! This allowed me to progress further with exercises. He would highly recommend his services !

Steroid Injection Facts

1. Ultrasound guided injections are a type of procedure where a needle is inserted into the body with the help of an ultrasound machine.

2. This type of procedure is often used for injecting medication into joints, muscles, or tendons.

3. It can also be used to aspirate fluid from joints.

4. Ultrasound guided injections are generally considered to be more accurate than traditional injections.

5. The ultrasound machine helps the practitoner to see where the needle is going and to avoid hitting any vital structures.

6. The procedure is usually done with the patient sitting or lying down on a treatment plinth.

7. A gel is applied to the skin to help the ultrasound waves travel through the body.

8. The practitioner will then use the ultrasound machine to guide the needle into the desired area.

9. Once the needle is in place, the medication is injected.

10. The whole procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes.

Statistics
