In general, the purpose of infiltration under ultrasound guidance is to reduce the risks associated with therapeutic measures in connection with a problem with the joints. Indeed, ultrasound allows the doctor to continuously monitor the position and path of his needle, which brings greater precision in the gesture. This gain in precision makes it easier to avoid risk areas, namely certain nerves and blood vessels, in addition to making the gesture more comfortable for the patient.
