Abstract

Multimodality Imaging Guidance for Interventional Pain Management is a comprehensive resource covering fluoroscopy-guided procedures, ultrasound interventions, and computed tomography (CT)-guided procedures used in interventional pain management. Fluoroscopy-guided procedures have been the standard of care for many years and are widely available and affordable. Due to the lack of radiation exposure and the ability to see various soft tissue structures, ultrasound-guided interventions are more precise and safer. The benefits, disadvantages, and basic techniques of CT-guided procedures, primarily performed by radiologists, are also included in the volume. By covering all imaging modalities, Multimodality Imaging Guidance for Interventional Pain Management allows for an efficient comparison of the capabilities of each modality.
