Understanding Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention
How We Use Diagnostic Imaging to Treat the Body
Our Musculoskeletal Radiologists perform procedures with the help of technologists who provide the doctor with real time images right in the space the procedure is being done. This is done using either ultrasound or fluoroscopic images . The MSK Radiologist is then able to see into your body, and to place the needle and/or guidewire in the exact spot where therapy is needed, without having to make an incision. That is why it is called minimally invasive, there is no incision requiring stitches, just the insertion of a needle. Using this minimally invasive technique allows us to perform procedures with a much higher degree of accuracy, with the added benefit of faster recovery times.
We perform procedures such as steroid injections, nerve blocks, tendon interventions, Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI) and more advanced forms of regenerative medicine such as Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.
