1 - 2 weeks availability


This practical guide thoroughly discusses both well-established and new interventions that are applied to the spine for the purpose of pain relief. Traditionally, pain procedures were in the limited purview of the pain anesthesiologist. Only a portion of these procedures were image guided. The growth in utilization of spine intervention and the realization that image guidance improves outcomes and safety has produced a need for this cutting-edge book. This book is an ideal aid for radiologists and other physicians who deal with back pain.
