WHAT IS AN IMAGE GUIDED STEROID INJECTION?
At Lake District hospital we focus on delivering our patients top quality care and services. The imaging department is able to provide those patients in need of steroid injections for both therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. We use Computed Tomography (CT) for precision and accuracy for needle guidance to ensure proper placement. These procedures are performed by our board certified interventional radiologists, using today’s most current techniques.
These procedures are ordered from your physician and scheduled accordingly. Some preparation prior to your appointment may be asked of you. All injection procedures are done under sterile technique for patient safety.
