Calvin Medical uses image guidance to perform our injections. Many studies have shown that the success of a procedure is based upon accurate needle placement. This can happen through use of a musculoskeletal ultrasound for most joint and soft tissue injections and C-arm fluoroscopy for spine injections. Proper imaging devices allow precise needle guidance to ensure the injection of the correct structure.
