For pain management specialist, Dr. David Rosenblum, M.D., accuracy is everything when it comes to injecting expensive biologics to control his patients’ pain. That’s why he relies on ultrasound guidance for the majority of musculoskeletal injections.
I think it’s more accurate than blind and it probably is even more specific than using an X-ray. I don’t need to add contrast, I could just find the joint or the tendon and inject into the region,” he explains. “It’s giving me some more flexibility. It also is probably cutting down the cost for some patients who can’t afford fluoroscopic guided PRP, which may be more expensive. So, the ultrasound makes it easier to do the procedures in the joint. For instance, the sacroiliac joint without the added expense of a C-arm.”
We recently had the opportunity to visit Dr. Rosenblum at his clinic at the Maimonides Medical Center in New York. Watch this x-minute video to learn what he had to say about his experience using the Clarius L15 HD3 wireless handheld ultrasound for his pain management practice and when teaching pain physicians, anesthesiologists, and physiatrists how to use ultrasound guidance for regenerative medicine.
