What are CT Injections, Arthrograms and Biopsies?
CT Injections, Arthrograms and Biopsies are interventional procedures used to treat pain and diagnose injury and disease.
CT Injections use CT technology to diagnose and guide needle injections into joints and soft tissue to relieve musculoskeletal pain. CT guided injections are often considered after physiotherapy or medication has not been successful in addressing pain, but before surgery is contemplated or if surgery is not possible. These injections deliver medications or cortisone directly to the area that is the source of the pain.
An Arthrogram uses contrast dye injection to assess the inside of a joint to diagnose an injury or a symptom you may be experiencing. It is primarily used for diagnosis of problems in knees, hips, shoulders, wrists and ankles.
A Biopsy uses a very thin needle and syringe to withdraw a tissue or fluid specimen from an organ or suspected tumor mass, to diagnose disease.

What types of CT Injections, Arthrograms and Biopsies are offered at Envision?
There are number of different types of CT Injections, Arthrograms and Biopsies we perform at Envision including:
Medical Imaging Practice Perth
Types of Imaging
At Envision, we offer the most sought-after types of imaging for diagnostics and treatments. Our Wembley headquarters is the largest single-site radiology practice in Perth
PET-CT is a Nuclear Medicine procedure in which a small amount of a radioactive compound is injected into your body.
MRI scans are best for investigating the soft tissue structures of the body such as muscles, ligaments, the brain and spinal cord.
CT images are very high resolution, generating up to 2000 images per scan. Our doctors carefully review those images
Ultrasound is a safe and widely used real time imaging technique. It uses high frequency sound waves which are produced by a special ultrasound machine.
NUCLEAR MEDICAL IMAGING
Nuclear Medicine is a radiology procedure used to evaluate the function of a body system and detect disease.
CONE BEAM CT SCANS
Cone Beam CT Scans are scans which allows 3D visualisation of the teeth, jaws and face.
OPG, LATERAL & PA CEPH
Panoramic radiographs, more commonly known as OPGs (orthopantomograms), are a special panoramic picture
