Computed tomography–guided celiac plexus interventions, especially neurolytic blocks, have become a popular technique as neurolytic blocks require precise placement of the needle into the plexus and careful monitoring of the spread of the neurolytic solution to minimize potential complications. The chapter focuses on CT guidance. It reviews the advantages of CT compared with other imaging modalities in celiac plexus blocks (CPBs) as well as the step-by-step technique and how to avoid complications.
