Ultrasound-Assisted Cervical Diskography and Intradiskal Procedures
The role of diagnostic cervical diskography in the evaluation of patients with neck pain and degenerative disk disease remains controversial . However, provocative cervical diskography is performed in an effort to identify the origin of cervical pain and hence help directing appropriate intervention. Ultrasound will play a pivotal role in performing cervical diskography and percutaneous intradiskal cervical procedures as it will allow us to accurately visualize the various relevant nearby soft tissue structures and avoid their injury .
