About this book

As image-guided spine interventions have increasingly become a primary strategy for managing back pain, the tools and capabilities available to practitioners have grown significantly. This fully revised edition of Image-Guided Spine Interventions presents the latest procedures available to physicians who perform minimally invasive spine interventions. The comprehensive text covers the fundamentals—such as spine anatomy, procedural materials, and pharmacological requirements—along with chapters devoted to key topics such as discography, percutaneous descectomy, vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty, epidural steroid injections, and autonomic nerve blocks. Additionally, three new chapters are included in the Second Edition, covering pulsed radiofrequency procedures, sacroplasty, and spinal cord stimulation. Each technique is presented in a straightforward manner that allows the reader to effectively evaluate and implement new procedures. The text is further enhanced by nearly 200 images and illustrations.

Edited by Dr. John Mathis, a former president of the American Society of Spine Radiology, and Dr. Stanley Golovac, who both have clinical practices devoted solely to spine procedures and pain management, the book will be useful to all physicians dealing with back pain, including radiologists, pain anesthesiologists, spine neurosurgeons, and orthopedists. Physicians will once again find that Image-Guided Spine Interventions, 2nd Edition, is the pivotal authority on image-guided techniques for the spine.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This is a complete procedure-oriented book on spine injections commonly practiced by pain physicians for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. … It covers all aspects of injections from patient selection to complications, with a focus on injection technique and how to use fluoroscopy for guidance. … the book’s audience includes orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, neurosurgeons, and pain anesthesiologists. It provides both basic information and practical tips about various injections, which makes it useful both for trainees and experienced practitioners.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2011)
