How safe is an ultrasound-guided steroid injection?

It is a very safe procedure. All radiologists working for Prime Health are experienced, FRCR accredited clinicians and work within a sub-speciality area of interest.

In line with World Health Organisation guidelines, additional safety policies have been introduced by Prime Health and our clinicians must now consider any risks posed by COVID-19. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire and the healthcare professional will need to determine that the benefits of the steroid injection, especially if you are over 70 70 or with co-morbidities, outweigh any risk of infection.
