How It Works

The Technology

The probe transmits a narrow series of ultrasound beams to start to map the internal anatomy.

Echoes from these ultrasound beams return to sensors and are identified based on time and intensity.

Data is interpreted to provide real-time information about internal anatomy.

Recognizing anatomy and the needle allows safer and more accurate delivery.

Head & Neck
These interventions can be done with guidance and ensuring avoidance of blood vessels and nerves.

  • Greater occipital nerve injections
  • Neck and trapezius trigger point injections
  • Trapezius, rhomboid, levaor strain/pain
  • Costochondritis
  • Sternoclavicular joint arthropathy
There are wide number of pain generators in the shoulders. Effective procedures are available for many of these conditions.
  • Subacromial bursitis and impingement syndrome
  • AC joint arthrosis
  • GH joint arthrosis
  • Deltoid enthesitis
  • Biceps tendinopathy
  • Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Calcific tendinopathy
Wrists, Hands & Elbows
These conditions of the superficial layers are amenable to safe intervention.
  • Distal and proximal intersection syndrome
  • Trigger finger/thumb
  • Arthritis of the IP joints/MCP joints/CMC joint
  • Wrist arthritis
  • Tendinitis/tendinopathy
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ulnar neuropathy at Guyon’s canal and the cubital tunnel
  • De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
  • Lateral and medial epicondylitis (tennis and golfer’s elbow)
  • Olecranon bursitis
Hip & Pelvis
Even the deep hip joint can be injected with accuracy, when ultrasound is used.
  • Meralgia paresthetica (Lateral cutaneous femoral nerve hydrodissection)
  • Sacro-Iliac (SI) joint inflammation
  • Trochanteric bursitis (aka greater trochanteric pain syndrome)
  • Gluteal tendinopathy
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Hip osteoarthritis
Common acute and chronic knee conditions can be treated.
  • Arthritis
  • Pes anserine bursitis
  • Patellar tendinopathy
  • Baker’s cysts
  • Pre-patellar and infra-patellar bursitis
  • Ilio-Tibial (IT) band syndrome
  • Peroneal nerve inflammation/impingement
Ankle & Feet
  • Ankle joint arthritis
  • Subtalar joint injections
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • 1st MTP arthritis/gout
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
