High-frequency sound waves can be used to create images of targeted internal biological structures. Sonography, or ultrasound, is one of the medical imaging options available for both diagnosis and interventional treatments at Caliber Pain™. Our pain specialists utilize ultrasound technology for a variety of procedures to ensure patients receive the best possible medical care. Our clinic in Midtown Manhattan offers ultrasound on-site to perform diagnostic testing and treatments for patients.
What Are the Benefits of Ultrasound Imaging?
X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, ultrasounds and fluoroscopy all are types of medical imaging that can be used for diagnosis and treatment. Our physicians utilize multiple types of medical imaging in various situations. This ensures that we have the most reliable tools for diagnosing and treating patients. In some circumstances, ultrasound imaging offers the best solution. Some of the benefits of ultrasound imaging include:
- No radiation, limiting risks for the patient and our personnel
- Excellent soft tissue images – ultrasounds can show blood vessels and nerves that are not visible in fluoroscopy
- Ultrasound images can detect liquid better, which can be beneficial when delivering liquid medication through an ultrasound-guided injection
- Easy to view internal structures in real-time
At Caliber Pain™, we may utilize ultrasound to view internal structures for diagnostic purposes. It is also one of the options we use when performing steroid, anesthetic or regenerative injections. Ultrasound-guided injections can be the best option when delivering medication or regenerative substances to soft tissues to avoid needle penetration of nerves and blood vessels.
Utilizing the right tools and technology allows our team at Caliber Pain™ to provide the best medical care for patients.
