BMUS launch new ultrasound guidelines

The use of ultrasound to guide injections has become increasingly popular in many MSK services delivered by a range of professional groups.

To support you in your practice, today (May 12), BMUS launched its Guidelines for the Administration of Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Injections. These guidelines are helpful for staff within radiology departments and other services where non-medical healthcare professionals perform these interventions.

This 28 page publication is designed to:

  1. Provide guidance for development of an ultrasound-guided injection service
  2. Provide templates for the ultrasound practitioner to use in an ultrasound-guided injection service
  3. Suggest training options for those wishing to develop ultrasound-guided injection services

It will also include in-depth information on a range of topics, including criteria for ultrasound-guided injections, contraindications and cautions… and much, much more.

It is also anticipated that the guidelines will provide a framework for service providers and ultrasound practitioners to amend and apply at a local level.

The document can be read in full here.

For additional cutting-edge open access resources such as The Guidelines for the Administration of Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Injections, have a look at the Professional and Clinical Guidance pages on the BMUS website.
