USG Guided Procedure

Overview

Ultrasound guide procedures are becoming more popular in today’s medical world due to more minimally invasive approaches. Many hospitals, clinics, and doctor offices are using ultrasound technology for a variety of diagnostic purposes such as to locate and examine fluid collection in tendons, muscles, cysts, and soft tissue masses, so that:

  • Fluid can be accurately extracted 
  • Biopsies can be accurately guided
  • Cysts and abscesses can be drained
  • Some kinds of tendinitis can be treated

Ultrasound is a diagnostic medical examination that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce high-resolution dynamic visual images of the internal organs, as well as blood flow without exposure to ionizing radiation. Thus Ultrasound-guided procedures are considered safe and minimally invasive. The following are a few common ultrasound-guided procedures;

Types of Ultrasound-Guided Procedure

  • Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy
  • Ultrasound-Guided Cervical Spine Injection
  • Ultrasound-Guided Liver Biopsy
  • Ultrasound-Guided Thyroid Biopsy
  • Ultrasound-Guided Thoracentesis

The safe performance of diagnostic procedures is an important part of any medical practice. Both physicians and patients often prefer an ultrasound-guided procedure when compared to a surgical, invasive procedure. Ultrasound technology is commonly used in biopsy procedures. 

Why USG Guided Procedure

Several health professionals find Ultrasound-guidance safer and more successful than a “blind” approach. This applies to both targeted and nontargeted biopsy procedures. Image guidance during targeted biopsy procedures allows a better evaluation of the lesion and increases the diagnostic yield. Even in nontargeted biopsy procedures, the use of real-time ultrasound may be vital in planning a safe approach and identifying local complications immediately. The use of ultrasound during drainage procedures usually avoids the need for a fluoroscopic assessment of guidewire or catheter position, thereby eliminating or significantly reducing the radiation dose. High-frequency US probes show the needle tip position in exquisite detail, which may be vital, for example, in small collections or nondilated urinary systems.
