Image-Guided Interventional Diagnosis and Treatment


Image-guided diagnosis and treatment have grown significantly in the last decade. A major component in this growth is the use of ultrasound as an imaging guide in the treatment of musculoskeletal pathology (Table 4.1). Fluoroscopic arthrography and joint injections, however, remain the most commonly requested procedures and are reviewed in detail.
