Ultrasound guided hip injections

This technique offers an accurate and comfortable approach to the anterior hip recess. An important consideration is the presence of neurovascular structures more medially in the femoral triangle. This technique is for more experienced clinicians.

Hip ultrasound guided injection – anterior approach

This technique is similar in its approach to the ‘landmark’ guided approach, but enables greater flexibility and accuracy. The use of ultrasound enables the clinician to choose a route of access, avoiding bony projections that commonly occur with degenerative joints. Ultrasound also facilitates the opportunity to access pockets of effusion, ensuring intracapsular injection but significantly improving patient comfort.
