Ultrasound-guided interventions in sports and regenerative medicine

Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas UGPro® Solution Case Study.

Ultrasound is increasingly being used by sports and regenerative medicine physicians to supplement a diagnostic musculoskeletal (MSK) evaluation. With ultrasound, point-of-care (POC) healthcare providers can visualize soft tissue tears in muscles, tendons, ligaments and joint spaces at a high spatial resolution. Along with growth in diagnostic procedures, ultrasound is also increasingly being used to guide injections especially in pain management and regenerative medicine.

Ultrasound can benefit daily rheumatology practice

February 11, 2020 -- Ultrasound may benefit daily rheumatology practice, according to a study published on January 29 in JCR: Journal of Clinical Rheumatology. Researchers found that ultrasound-guided injections take less than 10 minutes and have a 98% accuracy rate.

Despite studies showing ultrasound's efficacy for some common rheumatological procedures, ultrasound is still not regularly used in many rheumatology departments. The new study suggests ultrasound may be a fast and cost-effective addition to synovial fluid aspirations and drug injections.
