Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel , Orthopedic Surgeon.
I would like to say following with reference to your queries:
1. Glass syringe with needle does not leave any foreign body inside. Doctor giving you injection must have looked clearly at the needle to see if it is broken or not.
2. Needle being Stainless steel, is generally clearly seen in X rays .
3. Bio- Glass needles are not used in general. This you can see on ultrasound examination.
4. Ultrasound or CT Guided needle removal can be done under local anesthesia or under General Anesthesia if it is deep.
Thanks for the question
I hope to have answered your query. Please feel free to ask any other question.
