MIC offers innovative PRP injections to treat joint and soft tissue pain or injuries. These injections are a safe and effective autologous treatment.

All PRP injections are performed by our expert musculoskeletal (MSK) radiologists—doctors with specialized training in image-guided treatments for soft tissue and joint issues.

Our MSK radiologist will use either ultrasound or fluoroscopy imaging to guide the injection, ensuring accurate and precise delivery of the platelet-rich plasma to the target area.

MIC's innovative platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections treat joint and soft tissue pain or injuries.

By using your body’s own healing properties, PRP injections can potentially help reduce pain, increase your range of motion, and shorten your recovery time.

Pain relief following a PRP injection can take time. You should expect to start seeing results 3-4 weeks after your procedure.

01/23/2024

MIC offers radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for patients who have chronic back or neck pain. RFA is a safe injection procedure that causes a tiny burn that interrupts nerve signals to the brain, thus eliminating pain.

During the RFA, our radiologist will use fluoroscopy guidance to insert a special radiofrequency needle and then send a small amount of electrical current through it to make sure it is in the right place.

Next, an anesthetic will be injected to freeze the nerve to minimize pain while the procedure takes place.

The radiologist then uses radiofrequency waves to heat the tip of the needle and create a burn on the nerve. This small heat lesion will interrupt the nerve’s ability to send pain signals to your brain.

If more than one nerve has to be treated, then each requires a separate injection.

Our radiologist will determine whether it is safe to do so at your appointment or whether you will need to come back.

"Why am I experiencing radiating pain in my arm or leg?"

Your spine has several foramina or holes through which nerve roots emerge. If these foramina are partially closed from bulging disks, bone spurs, misalignment of vertebrae, or other issues, the nerve root can also be pinched.

Pinched nerve roots typically cause a shooting or radiating pain in your arm or leg that follows the path of a single nerve.

To help relieve this pain, our radiologists can perform a nerve root block!

During a nerve root block, our radiologist will use fluoroscopy guidance to inject a local anesthetic and steroid into the area where the nerve exits in the spinal column to help relieve pain.

01/15/2024

An epidural injection is an injection of medication into the space around the spinal cord, also known as the epidural space, to provide relief from pain or inflammation.

This procedure is usually done to treat lower back symptoms related to spinal canal narrowing or degenerative disease.

During the procedure, our radiologist will use fluoroscopy imaging guidance to make sure the needle is in the right location for maximum pain relief.

01/13/2024

Barbotage is a minimally invasive treatment to dissolve and remove calcium that can build up on the tendons of the rotator cuff.

This calcium buildup is also known as calcific tendonosis. During the procedure, our radiologist will use ultrasound to find the area to be treated and inject a local anesthetic.

The radiologist will then use ultrasound guidance to pass a small needle through this area attempting to break up the calcium.

This allows the body to reabsorb it easier and allows the calcium to dissipate over time.

If the deposit is more liquid in nature, the radiologist will attempt to aspirate (remove) some of the calcium as well.

Lastly, the radiologist injects corticosteroid into the bursal lining around the tendon to alleviate any existing inflammation.

🔹Hips

💉MIC radiologists perform joint injections to help patients who have chronic pain in a joint.

This is a safe procedure which can assist in both the evaluation and treatment of a variety of conditions.

During the procedure, an MIC radiologist will use fluoroscopic guidance to inject an anti-inflammatory medication such as cortisone into joints to decrease inflammation and reduce pain. 💪

In some patients, the cause of pain is not clear and the injection is used both for diagnosis and treatment.

👨‍⚕️To become a radiologist, you need considerable post-secondary education and training. 👩‍⚕️

First, you must complete an applicable undergraduate degree, which typically takes four years.

Then you must challenge the MCAT and complete medical school, which is another four years. 🩺

After finishing medical school and passing a licensing exam, physicians must complete a five-year post-graduate residency, specializing in radiology.

From here, radiologists may elect to start their careers! However, some decide to subspecialize in areas of interest. ⚕️

To sub-specialize, radiologists must complete a clinical fellowship, which takes an additional 1-2 years of training.

In all, becoming a radiologist is a very lengthy procedure. It takes between 13-15 years of post-secondary education. 📚

Our team of highly educated radiologists take great pride in delivering accurate and timely results to your physician.

When you visit one of our locations, you can rest assured knowing you are in good hands. 🙌

Did you know MIC is owned and operated by Canada’s largest radiology partnership with the most sub-specialized radiologists in Alberta?

Having the most subspecialized radiologists in the province is important for two reasons:

1. When you visit one of our clinics, you know the radiologist interpreting your medical images is an absolute expert in that field – be it abdominal, breast, cardiac, musculoskeletal, neuro, pediatric imaging etc.

2. Our sub-specialists can collaborate with each other on unique cases. Since our practice has so many radiologists with clinical fellowships and research in unique fields, our experts can communicate and utilize our in-house expertise to diagnose the most complex conditions.

🎥What is a radiologist? 🩺

As Dr. Modest Janicki states, a radiologist is a doctor who uses medical imaging such as x-ray, MRI, ultrasound, CT, or nuclear medicine to examine a patient.

Radiologists read and interpret the medical imaging, issue a report to other physicians, and help obtain a diagnosis for a patient’s condition.

Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD), also called bone density scanning or “DEXA”, is a safe, painless and accurate way to measure the density of your bones.

A BMD test can tell you whether or not you have osteoporosis and how likely you are to develop it in the future. Your physician can use the information from this exam to evaluate your fracture risk and also examine the efficacy of physical therapy.

Talk to your doctor to see if you or someone you know would benefit from a bone density exam.

Should you require an appointment, contact our Central Booking Team at (780) 450-1500 with your requisition to schedule an exam.

November is also Osteoporosis Awareness Month.

According to Osteoporosis Canada, two million Canadians are affected by osteoporosis, and at least one in three women and one in five men will break a bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime.

Several factors can impact bone health throughout your lifetime, so it is important to speak to your healthcare provider about your risk of osteoporosis and screening options such as a bone density scan.
