Ultrasound guided injections

Trochanteric Bursa Injection: injections are prescribed for patients who present clinically with bursitis on the outside of their hip, ultrasound-guidance ensures the injectate is accurately given into the bursa. 

Intra-articular Injections: an ultrasound-guided cortisone injection made directly into the hip joint can provide relief. Ultrasound-guided cortisone injections using dedicated high-resolution ultrasound equipment are very precise and allow a radiologist to target the injections directly into an area, maximizing therapeutic outcomes. Some may feel relief from pain within two to five days. If a patient feels no relief within ten days following the injection, the patient is unlikely to gain any additional improvement and further diagnostic testing may be needed to identify other options for relief.

Psoas Injections: are performed under ultrasound, are often prescribed when the diagnosis is thought to be a symptomatic psoas tendon, which runs outside of the hip joint.
