Welcome to the SonoScope ultrasound guided injection clinic

 

One Stop MSK Diagnosis/Treatment Clinic

 

SonoScope provides a comprehensive clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic package “one stop shop" for those requiring ultrasound guided injections. This will all be provided within the one session.

The session starts with a clinical consultation which includes a physical examination of the painful area. This will help the clinician to understand the nature of the problem.  This is followed by a diagnostic ultrasound scan of the problematic area which will provide additional information to help form a clinical diagnosis and to decide if injection therapy is the correct treatment for you. It will also help identify the structure to be injected.

Ultrasound guided injection therapy provides a high degree of accuracy which in many cases also improves the effectiveness of injection therapy when compared with unguided injections (Aly et al, 2015; Finnoff et al, 2015).

Included in the package is a clinical report which will contain information gained from the clinical assessment as well as any additional diagnostic information from the ultrasound scan and further specific information about the injection procedure performed.
