Ultrasound is sound or other vibrations having an ultrasonic frequency used in medical imaging. Medical imaging helps providers like James L. Carlisle, MD determine diagnosis of pain or symptoms affecting patient’s quality of life.
In recent years, pain medicine has seen growing interest in the use of ultrasound guided intervention in pain management and therapy techniques. This is because ultrasound provides a safe way to directly visualize the soft tissues in the body and can aid in needle placement during complex or sensitive injection sites – such as an epidural steroid injections. Pain management physicians understand the importance of ultrasound guided intervention because the technology allows for the most accurate placement of injected medicines into the joint space of areas such as the knees, shoulders, and hips.
