Improved safety — Having such precise visualisation of needles throughout the entire injecting process improves overall safety. Ultrasound pictures are created using sound waves at a high frequency. They also do not use harmful ionizing radiation.
Reduced procedural pain — Ultrasound-guided injections are typically quicker and less painful than unguided injections.
