Image Guided Techniques


Image guided techniques for pain management enable your doctor to provide precisely targeted pain relief. The doctor is able to see exactly where the treatment is being directed using imaging tools such as X-Ray fluoroscopy, CT imaging, or ultrasound.

Imaging techniques can be used before and during the procedure in order to identify and target the precise spot where the treatment is needed. The needle or surgical instrument can be guided into the right position using the images so that nerve blocks, radiofrequency lesioning or other pain management treatments can be targeted to specific nerves or areas of soft tissue.

Image guided techniques enable pain management treatments to be delivered more precisely, even to the most hard-to-reach parts of the body. By allowing the doctor to see what is happening, these imaging techniques can increase the chances of success and reduce the risks involved in targeting delicate areas such as the spine.
