Fluoroscopy and Ultrasound Diagnostic Injections: A Technique at the Cutting Edge of Technology
Fluoroscopy is a type of X-ray imaging that makes it possible to precisely visualize organs and internal structures in motion.
Fluoroscopy is the technology of choice when the pain arises from sensory nerves in the facet joints of the spine or neck or in the sacroiliac joint. Sensory nerves are very small nerves, whose only function is to transmit signals to the brain from the joint they are connected to.
With the help of cutting-edge technology, we are able to accurately detect the origin of the pain. These diagnostic injections help to establish not only where the origin of the pain exists, but an effective treatment method. We can then establish whether ablation, rhizotomy, or PRP injections to the joint will be the most impactful treatment method.
Ideal Access to the Spine and Sciatic Nerve
Moreover, fluoroscopy is sometimes the only alternative to surgery. Indeed, having a precise image of the painful region enables us to treat affected areas that are hard to reach such as the epidural space in the spine or the sciatic nerve. Our doctors have had the best training, recognized worldwide, in order to use the cutting-edge equipment needed for fluoroscopy.
