Image Guided Pain Management

Understanding Image Guided Pain

Disc herniations, arthritis and injury can inflict pain which is debilitating at times. In conjunction with imaging, painful symptoms can be correlated with findings on x-rays and MRI. Using these tools for diagnosis, our radiologists can tailor site-specific,  minimally invasive treatments which help to alleviate symptoms and allow the body to heal in conjunction with other conservative treatment such as physical therapy.

Using fluoroscopy and CT, our radiologists perform a variety of image guided pain interventions including epidural steroid injections and facet joint injections for pain in the neck or low back or radiating from there into the arms or legs; joint injections in the hip, shoulder, knee, foot or ankle; vertebroplasty for fractures of the spine; and sympathetic blocks for reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
