Thoroughly illustrated with state-of-the-art CT and fluoroscopic scans and original drawings, this text/atlas offers step-by-step instructions for image-guided pain block techniques in regional anesthesia and pain medicine. Dr. Rathmell demonstrates how to perform all commonly used injection techniques and familiarizes pain practitioners with the radiographic anatomy encountered during these procedures.
For each procedure, Dr. Rathmell provides details on patient selection, patient positioning, technique, and potential complications, with special attention to the use of radiographs to guide needle or catheter placement. Each technique is illustrated with a drawing and CT or fluoroscopic images, with legends highlighting anatomic landmarks on the images.
