This chapter reviews the anatomy and ultrasound-guided techniques of various shoulder injections, including the glenohumeral joints, subacromial subdeltoid bursa, long head of biceps, and acromioclavicular joint. Ultrasonography is a very useful tool allowing accurate localization of the various target structures for shoulder injections and real-time guidance of the needle insertion. A good understanding of the anatomy and sonoanatomy is of paramount importance in performing the ultrasound-guided injections.
