Background: Intervention under ultrasonography (US) guidance has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. This study aimed to assess the treatment response to US-guided musculoskeletal interventions in daily practice. Methods: This retrospective study sought to identify the treatment response to US-guided interventions in different tissues conducted between January 2017 and December 2018. The treatment response to various US-guided interventions in different tissues was recorded. The response was further classified into positive response and negative response according to the improvement of symptoms or satisfaction of the treatment. Results: Among the 605 interventions included for data analysis, a positive response rate of 81% was observed in this study for all US-guided interventions, ranging from 70% to 88% in different categories. Conclusion: This real-world analysis demonstrated the effectiveness of various US-guided interventions without serious complications. We recommend US as a useful guidance for a variety of injections.
