the C-arm Fluoroscopy Room used for Radiological Intervention.
Interventional procedures, such as Myelography and Arthrography are ordered for the diagnosis of pain and used in conjunction with another imaging exam, such as MRI or CT. They are performed to acquire additional information regarding pain symptoms so that your physician can establish the appropriate treatment.
Fluoroscopy (x-ray images that appear on a television-like monitor) is used to guide the placement of the needle that delivers the contrast material to the area of concern. The contrast material verifies accurate placement of the needle.
These procedures usually
take between 30 and 60 minutes.
