What are Guided Knee Injections?
Treatments performed without needle confirmation technology can miss the joint entirely and render the treatment useless depending on the type of product or medication administered. With guided knee injections, our expert physicians employ top-flight imaging technology to ensure that the treatment you need arrives exactly where it needs to go so you receive maximum pain relief.
The imaging unit employed for guided knee injections is commonly referred to as the C-arm since it’s shaped like a “C.” Also called a fluoroscope, this digital x-ray technology takes live video images to confirm the needle placement. It’s typically used for joint injections, catheter placement in cardiac procedures, or intravenous placement of ports for pic lines in a deep vein that can be seen without x-ray.
