Sharp grinding – excellent echogenicity
The particularly sharp cut of the SonoMSK meets the special requirements of musculoskeletal injections. This reduces the pain when puncturing and advancing the cannula to a minimum. The excellent echogenic properties of the SonoMSK enable precise real-time tracking of the puncture and injection process and minimise the risk of intravascular injections. 1) 2) 3)

Optimum echogenicity
The three-dimensional Cornerstone embossings provide outstanding ultrasonic visibility through their geometry, arrangement and placement. 4)

Area of application: Injections of muscles, joints and tendons


Advantages of SonoMSK:

  • Particularly sharp grinding geometry
  • Bevelled grinding with back cut bevel

Benefits of Ultrasound Guided Injections vs Landmark Technique, Fluoroscopy or CT-Guidance:

  • Higher success rate at initial treatment
  • Less time/less complaints7)
  • Reduced treatment costs3) 7)
  • No radiation exposure
  • More precise localisation of the injection – improves functional result8) 9) 10)
